    Hi all

    While doing a defrag i noticed that i have a 8GB for msn! which can be
    found:
    \Documents and Settings\[Windows Logon]\Local Settings\Application
    Data\Microsoft\Messenger\[User Account]\SharingMetadata\Working (folder by
    be hidden)

    Has anyone else noticed something simulair? If so does anyone know what it
    is for?

    Personally i find it strange to have SUCH a big file for WLM! lol

  4. I would just delete the file. If you want to really make sure, uninstall
    WLM, delete the folders, then reinstall 566. But deleting just the file
    should be fine.

  6. Oh yeah???? What happens if you have FAT 32 instead of NTFS?

    You get a REAL 8 gb file!

    Then I'd feel sorry for those people using an outdated file system on their
    hard drives heh.

  9. I don't think so, as the Sharing Folders feature is disabled entirely when using FAT32.
