    If it starts with $NT_Uninstall or something very similar, then thats service packs or patches that are doing backups as noted in the original answer. Otherwise, it could be crash data from memory dumps, and or temporary files. I'd click the folder and do a quick glance at the contents before I removed them just to be sure.

    The modification date/time could give a hint. Did your machine crashed on that date ? or did you install something, or defragmented your disk ? Where are those files/folders located ?

    You need to optimize your computer. For optimization you would have to delete temporary files, disk cleaning and disk defragmantation. After that check about your that particular folder. If you facing still same problem and want to more help please visit: www.iyogi.net
