Mysterious large hidden folder McAfee EERM

I had an empty usb drive that said it was full (15gb). Didn’t show anything with “show hidden folders and files” option on in windows. Did a “attrib -r -h -s /s /d D:*.*” and it showed two folders. “McAfee EERM” which was almost of the 15gb, and “System Volume Info” which was almost nothing.

I deleted the folder since I hadn’t used this drive in years so there was nothing important on it (or important enough for me to remember).

But I’m curious what this large folder was? And it doesn’t show up in my recycling bin so if I just deleted it is it still stilling on my PC somewhere?

Hi @everett4 ,

We regret for the inconvenience , Mcafee security features are updated and it might be possible related to the temp files which is present in the computer that might consume size of the file. kindly run the tracker and remover feature it will help to boost the computer performance.
