how to fix AppData folder

    คำถาม

  • Hi,

    Windows 7 OS

    My laptop was recently affected by virus, then I scanned it with MS Forefront Endpoint Protection.

    I had something like 109 GB free space on my C drive before the virus infection BUT now I have no space left only 399MB at most.

    When I checked my AppData folder has huge size all of a sudden I almost deleted everything in the AppFolder. Im left wit maybe 6 files and they so small in size

    BUT the AppData folder still shows that its 110GB in size.

    I do not want to format my C drive and reloading new window (last option)

    How to fix my AppData folder OR to get rid of this huge size (that I dont even see where is it coming from) ??

    Please advice.

  • If you are careful not to delete anything by accident, I would recommend telling us what may lie within that folder when you set the attributes of -h on that directory. Or go into your Folder Options and enable to view hidden files and folders. There may be hidden files and directories in this location that can account for this capacity. 

    Be forewarned though, don't delete anything and if you decide to delete anything in here I don't take responsibility for the outcome. I'm just curious to see what exists in there.
