Is it safe to delete these files? It wasn't there before and I don't know what it does, but it's bothering me all this time because of the files name.

Download an run Filealyzer.  This can explain what these files are.

From reading that entire page, that software only works with Windows 95 and older versions of Windows. That is some antique software. 

 

To the OP, do not attempt to use that software without any support.

@Rocky Bennett

 

FileAlyzer 2.0.5.57 was updated on 10/22/2012 and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1, and 10.

 

This download is a portable application.

 

Unless you have downloaded this application and tried it I would suggest that you hold off on panning it just because you are not familiar with it.  And I most assuredly would not suggest telling another member that this application is to complicated for them to use.  This is typical of your posting style.

dc3, Thanks for the new link. That first link that you posted you might have posted by mistake because it was obviously incorrect. By correcting that obvious mistake by posting a more updated link really helps out the OP and everybody else that is interested.

 

Thanks.

Please post exactly how this recovery folder is listed.  As you can see in the Windows Ten post there are two types of recovery folders, C:\RecoveryImage and C:\Recovery, which one are you referring to?

 

I would also like to know why you want to delete this folder.  Since this folder usually only contains a few hundred MB of space, not enough to warrant deleting.  Deleting either of these can cause problem.  If you delete the C:\Recovery you may not be able to boot into Windows.  If you delete the C:\Recoveryimage you will not be able to do a Refresh or Reset.

 

I would leave this folder alone, it isn't worth the headache you will have if it is deleted.
