"PerfLogs" folder in C partition of Vista 64bit problem

    Question

  • Hi all,

    After i installed Vista 64bit and go to create ghost image for C partition. I met an error before the ghost was

    going to create, it said, PerfLogs folder cannot be visited. I pressed continue to successfully created the image.

    I went into C partition to view the files, it did exist "PerfLogs" folder that I have no permission to access. This

    folder is only in Vista 64bit. Does that folder necessary for the windows?

    I am sure the ghost image that I have created doesn't contain that file, which mean when i restore the system, the

    folder should be missing, can windows still run properly?

    OS version: vista 64bit ultimate sp1
    Thank you for any information.

  • Hi,

     

    There is no mystery with this folder. "Perflogs" folder is created by Performance Information and Tools, and Reliability and Performance Monitor that tests and measures Vista system score rating and performance to save the recorded files. The data is saved in “perflogs\System\Diagnostics” according to folders named by date. If you no longer need the performance data, delete the folder. Vista will slim down by about 10 MB.
