Don't know what these files are!
Hello,

Computer Specs
Windows 7
Intel Pentium dual-core CPU p6000

I have these random files in my c drive and I can't seem to figure out if i really need them or not. I have taken a picture of my c drive and was wondering if someone would be able to assist me in figuring these folders out.

Files:
cfa911942012afe017bd9....
bdlog
Iv
Test
Perflogs

Thank You.

They are most likely files stored by other programs that are or were installed on your computer. Open them up. What do they contain? Any info about a specific program you may have installed?

Another trick is to look at the date modified and go in the uninstall a program wizard and match the date with a program installed. If the dates match, the file is most likely associated with that program.

You can delete the Perflogs files if you want but they probably are not taking any space up.

folder is created by Performance Information and Tools, and Reliability and Performance Monitor that tests and measures your system score rating and performance to save the recorded files.
