    It tells you this: system size for the this folder and sub components, share status(don't share this folder), security(who can read/write to the files in the folder tree for this folder, previous version (probably none). To the best of my knowledge, it is definitely part of a much needed component of the windows store environment. DON'T MESS WITH ANYTHING IN THE WINDOWS 32 FOLDER UNLESS YOU SURE OF YOUR ACTIONS. A deletion here can cause real serious issues including trashing the Operating System. Warned.

    Hi @orgwayne
    Welcome to tenforums.com!

    Helluva first post!

    It is basically the highest level 'Library' of the entire 32 bit portion of your operating system. Very much needed if you want a functioning OS!

    This is the heart of your OS. If you play with it, you'll get a heart attack.

    All of the system folders are strictly hands off unless you REALLY understand what you are doing. That level of understanding does not come easy.
