Curious as to what this folder is.

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this isn't the right spot to post this, if it isn't feel free to move it please.


i was going through my nvidia geforce experience settings, and had to change the location of my recordings to a different folder. In the nvidia program, it shows this: qwkYn18.png

at first, when i went to my C drive, i didn't see that folder that's highlighted in Green in the image i posted. I had to go to my folder options and uncheck "hide protected operating system files", i just thought it was weird that it shows the folder in the nvidia directory and not my own C drive. so after i unchecked "hide protected operating system files" i could now see the folder in my C drive, and inside it is "install.dat" and i uploaded "install.dat" to virustotal and it came back clean, i also scanned with malwarebytes and it came back clean, just never seen it before, kinda curious as to what it is. googling "82ace7d6-0197-474d-bf4b-a2043e72329b" has brought up posts about malware, but im not sure if its specifically that folder. i don't think i have malware, i tend to run scans every so often and they always come back clean. just wondering what this folder exactly is because i'mm curious. if anyone can shed some light on it, it'd be greatly appreciated.
