I just found the following directory with subdirectories on my server 2000 harddrive. I can not change the permissions on the folders or delete them. Microsoft server 2000 claims they are not theirs. Has anyone seen this before. According to properties they have been eating up harddrive space since 2004

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you take ownership of the folders with an account which had admin rights to the server hosting the files/folder that should reset all the rights on the folders. This should allow you to open the folders and view what’s in them.

if you are using an IBM or Lenovo computer this is part of the Rescue and Recovery Utility directory and is created by the manufacturer by default.

    It is on a dell server. I have no idea how the folders got loaded. There are three subfolders labeled 0,1 and 2 which contain files. I have tried various programs to change the attributes so I can delete them with no success so far.
