Hi We have a rather unusual case here and have certainly never come across it before.
Files on Desktop, Documents, Downloads etc. keep multiplying. Each file and shortcut present in those locations makes a copy of itself several times over. When it first happened it had more than 50 copies of same file.
The weirdest part is that when we manually delete duplicates, after a short while, sometimes almost instantaneously, they copy themselves all over again. The original files and all duplicates remain readable and 100% workable.
The workstation is on the domain, runs the latest anniversary update of Windows 10 Pro and doesn't seem to have any infections according to Malwarebytes and ESET (under constant AV/AM protection). The only thing I can think of it is a virus of some sort that is yet to be discovered by AV vendors, or Microsoft component gone rogue i.e. OneDrive, file history etc.
I don't suppose anyone come across this before?
Any help is deeply appreciated!
