Hi folks,


I decided this morning I was going to clear up my computer of all the stuff I no longer need.  When browsing through my C: drive I noticed two folders named "Index3" and "Index4".  Upon opening these folders I noticed there were a lot of files inside.


Each file is a Winrar archive (I have Winrar for games I play) and range from 1-20kb each.


"Index3" has 646 files in it named "0" all the way up to "645"

"Index4" has 6,827 files in it named "0" all the way up to "6,827"


As I say, these are only a couple KB each, but any space I can clear helps.


I've done a few google searches but cannot seem to find any information about these, could anyone shed some light please?

If...they are folders created by the Win 7 Indexing function...turning Indexing off should remove them.
