I have just installed a new 1TB hard drive in my computer that I will be using strictly for storage.  

Created 3 partitions and moved a few files (~500MB) to the largest partition (491GB) then noticed that the partition was almost full....

A 320GB folder called Job-2016926171465 has appeared.

Have attached a sample of the list of files in the folder.

Any idea what I am dealing with here?

I have encountered a folder like this before and simply deleted it without issue... but I would really like to know what is causing this...

Thanks for your help.

Thanks, didn't realize that my external hard drive was no longer accessible and I guess that when this new larger drive was available Paragon elected to use it....
