Hi,

Recently I was messing with the Windows Explorer and wanted to know what a specific folder was about. It seemed like just a storage folder so I put something in it. When I tried to open the file I put in it, it says:


(The text file (first one) was there before I started putting things in there.)

What's with the weird code for the name? Could this be some sort of virus or is it a program/windows file?

Here is some of the contents of the text file. It was 144k characters long. Something about Verbose logging that started and ended on the same date. (1/20/2007):

In Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab is the radio button for "Show hidden files and folders" ticked, and "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" unchecked?

Oh, no! You've found the BLACK HOLE folder! It's gravity is so strong that nothing, not even text files, can escape!

It looks like a log file for an installation of a Windows Update. It is probably a protected system folder. I'd leave it alone, but you could change permissions if you need to get something back.

The first text document starting with MSXML4 would indicate it relates to a Microsoft update to the MSXML 4.0 service. The remainder of the file name, "kb92978", shows that it is related to MS KnowledgeBase article 92978. Which can be found Here.

No, but they are now. And I still can't open or move any of my files I put in there (for what reason I don't know).

It could be because the file names are now too long. Windows reads the entire name from the root to the final folder. I had a similar problem. Two possible fixes:

1. Copy the folders/files you want to the c:\ drive. Sometimes you can copy, but not move, with long file names.

2. Write down the names of the files and folders you want to move. Then rename them to two characters, like A1, A2, etc. You may be able to move/copy them if this brings the total characters under the Windows max.

Hope this helps.

Pausebreak, neither of those things work. When I tried to copy it said, "Cannot create or replace "x"" and when I tried to rename it said cannot rename.

How do I make myself the owner?

Thanks for the help.

Sort of fixed it, I can view and move the files within the folder showed in the pic, now if I could just rescue the rest of the files...

Thank you everyone for your help.
