I recently installed a windows 2012 R2 std. server as a file server. I attached two data drives to it and formatted as NTFS.
Now I'm seeing a lot of strange folders with names like "fdc97f528a940c42705c15d6acb1" fill up the disk. Those folders contain an empty amd64 folder and nothing else.
If I don't manually cleanup there wil eventually be literally hundreds of these folders in the roots of my data drives. It reminds me of the win 2003 server windows update folders.
What are they and how can I stop them from being created?
