Windows/System files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed in my files under Windows/System there are a lot of files that have a '$' before and after the file name.  How importane are these files and if I can delete them because they are taking up a lot of space? Thank-you for your help

  • Hi Wildolsen,

    Thank you for your post.

    Based on your description, I would suspect that these files might be some temporary files for your machine. As far as I know, referring to system related files in Windows, it would be better to leave them on your PC if we're not quite sure what kind of files are they.

This will make answer searching in the forum easier and be beneficial to other community members as well.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
