Surface Drive hidden files RRS feed

  • Question

  • The hard drive on the surface RT is full despite my best efforts to delete any large files. I then used the search function to search by file size and found there to be video files and lots of other types of files hidden on my C drive under the file directory C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE\6UOMD02X

    I ran windows defender and that found nothing as usual as well as deleting all cache, history and temporary files in internet explorer however when I searched again these files remained. Each file also seems to be hidden as when I go back I can not find the file name to click into. Obviously I could delete the files but I feel that won't solve much. I also tried to download other malware and virus software but the RT will not let me install these apps. Thanks for your help
