Running windows 7 64 bit (sp1+updates) and I found this folder had a ton of videos in it that I have saved on other hard drives on my computer. By which I mean 86GB of videos.

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Safe mirror

What the hell copied them there? Actually I just had a though... I use bulk rename and based on the file names theres a pretty good chance these files were all touched in my bulk renaming... though based on the speed of the program I would have to assume the renaming was being done without copying the files. I'm going to have to check into that.

EDIT: now that I think of it Cobian seems much more likely to blame. I'm going to have to check into that.

Has anyone else seen similar behavior?

Other than the program that needs it, its safe to delete. They made have been placed there in-case something went wrong with the rename. I know some renamers made copies before renaming and then deleted them afterwords. If you haven't already and you don't need them, delete them.
