Found.000 contains winload.exe and winresume.exe


#1

Hi all.

I just checked inside my Local Disk C:/ and saw that there was a folder named ‘found.000’. I searched this up and found that this is generated by chkdsk; rather than deleting corrupted files, it stores them in this folder. I didn’t think it was too big of an issue until I looked inside the folder. This is the file structure:

C:/
-found.000
–dir_00000000.chk
—winload.efi
—winload.exe
—winresume.efi
—winresume.exe
—en-US
-----winload.efi.mui
-----winload.exe.mui
-----winresume.efi.mui
-----winresume.exe.mui

Should I be worried that winload.exe and winresume.exe were found and archived as corrupted files? I have had a couple random BSODs in the past 2 weeks. Can I delete this folder?
