Dear Community

Any of you already faced this ? A folder under D:\ has hundreds of subfolders with bizarre names (see attached screencap). All are empty but I find it really weired.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Do you have CCleaner? Is it set to under Tools > Drive Wipe to Wipe Free Space on that drive? Then uncheck that, delete the folders. By free space, CCleaner means space occupied by already deleted files [the files often still exist unless overwritten, but the pointer in the file manager is altered so as to show them as deleted].
If it is not set to wipe free space then it is playing at wiping some drive space, so uninstall CCLeaner, reinstall it, and delete those folders.

Many thanks Gerbil for clarifying this. Yes indeed, CCleaner is installed and that option is checked.
