I'm cleaning up a friend's computer and noticed there's an Android Folder under C: (C:Android/various stuff) and its 7.65GB in size! I'm wondering if its a native part of Windows 7 or not. Thanks.

No it's not a default folder. I have an Android and I have Win 7. My Win 7 does not have an Android folder anywhere by default. The only Android folders are ones I custom created.

You're welcome on behalf of the Bleeping Computer community. If you truly want to recover that 7.65GB or more of space. Once you are absolutely certain that data will never be needed don't forget to empty the recycle bin.
