    Data in Win 2k


    by jgranados ·

    I am having some concerns here. pardon me for my ignorance. I came across the DATA folder in Windows Explorer on one of our machines. When I click on the folder, it takes a long long time to show up and when it opens up, it has a ton of folders under it. One of the folders is 1.2 Gigs. What exactly is that DATA folder and what writes to that folder? Please help!

      I usually create
