    Eagle51, thanks again for your attention. I restored 1 & 5 to the C drive and changed the folder names of all 5 items a little bit to invalidate them. If nothing bad happens in a few days to a week I'll delete all of it and mark this thread as solved. Thanks as usual.

    Check out:
    ESD folder - Bing

    Since you state that it's already empty, I would delete it, since it is no longer being used.
