    "Infinite" Application Data folders and subfolders

    "Infinite" Application Data folders and subfolders (screen shots attached and/or via WEB links)

    I have an issue in my "C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data"
    folder. I believe its loosely called "Infinite" Application Data folders and subfolders

    C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data



    This has not caused any issues, I just stumbled on it. Google provides many hits,
    but, lots of talk, no solutions. The closest I've found is an app called
    junctionbox I installed, it will back up and restore, but not fix the issue.
    Screenshot shows the app and its options. I backed up, then tried "Delete
    all standard junctions in the selected profile"
    This only brought me to an option to open a backup. Either the app is useless
    or I am not using it correctly.


    Using dir /a I can see one:


    I believe I got this issue when adjusting permissions on these folders,
    which I did over 2-3 years ago, so its likly been this way a long time.
    As I said, I have had no issues so far, so its been this way a long time
    and all is fine. Being its been in place for so long, a restore is out
    of the question.

    Part of me says "If its not broken do not fix it" However, the other part
    of me says, its an issue...fix it before it becomes and issue. I have several
    PC on a network, and at least 3 of them also have this issue, and likely more
    of my 9 to 10 PC. (Again, all of which have no issue and likely had this a long
    time now)

    Does anyone have a solution for this?
