    $WINRE_BACKUP_PARTITION.MARKER File


    The Anniversary Update for Windows 10 seems to have left a "$WINRE_BACKUP_PARTITION.MARKER" file in the root of the C: drive. It is a 0 byte file. Does anyone know what this is? I presume it's safe to delete it, but can someone confirm? Thank you.

    There's a small thread on the Microsoft Community forum but no one seems to know whether it's entirely safe to delete.
