    {} Files in Windows Root Folder


    I have about 100 files that start with the { character and end with the } character. Inside these two characters are a series of numbers and letters. The file sizes vary from 2-3K. Some of the earliest files are from 2012 and were from prior Windows operating systems.

    This is typical of the file name.

    I would like to delete these files to clean up my root folder.

    Does anyone have a idea as to why these files were created? Can they safety be deleted?

    Move them to a flash drive for awhile. If no problems then delete them.
