At the root of the C drive is the file ATKPF.ini with size 4GB. What is the purpose of this file?

Thank you.

This file normally appears under C:\Windows and has a size of 24 bytes. It is an Asus notebook system file, that is not required for Windows to run correctly. There is no real detailed information I can find on the file or what it does.

 

If I was you I would rename it, let it be like that for some time... If nothing bad happens (make sure all your notebook functions work correctly), I would then delete it.

Or you could err on the side of caution and just leave it there renamed but undeleted, see if it ever gets missed.
