Offloading a windows user folder to an external drive - "Deamonprocess" output?
Posted on 2014-03-28
I've recently copied a simple windows user folder (C:/users/bob) as normal to retain all user details before rebuilding their PC.
I made an error and didn't double check the offload (backup) of the user folder as it seemed to transfer fine, around 16gb in total, however, I've just gone to restore the folder to the rebuilt PC and there is only a single file called 'daemonprocess' - The folder properties are reporting the same file size as expected but the user folder structure I would normally expect just isn't there - I've tried some Googling and all I get is virus info, I'm pretty sure this isn't a virus
The user folder was copied from a DC laptop logged in as administrator if that gives any more clues...
any pointers appreciated?
