Windows Protect Folder

By tiamat265x ·
Hey, I'm a computer tech who has a customer with a folder on his computer c:\Documents and Settings\%Userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Protect.

What is this folder, and is it safe to delete? It has over 800,000 files in it.

Any advice? Thanks in advance!

did you ever get a solution for this issue...I am facing the same problem. my ghost process, chkdsk, efsinfo process, everything hangs on this folder simply because there are over 800000 associated files or links in that folder.
this is crazy... how can I turn this crap off or empty that folder...

any help is appreciated..
