Hi guys. This has been bugging me for quite a while. There's this folder C:\Windows\PLA with contents that I cannot access. I tried giving myself access, but it does not let me do so. Can anyone tell me what's up with this folder and how I can access the content?

In that directory I have:


I think It has something to do with Windows Performance Index or Troubleshooting/Diagnostic test apps data.

Be careful of C:\Windows or C:\system32\
