Hi,

 

Yesterday I woke up and sat on my work laptop and I saw there was a deleted folder in the trash can, I opened it and saw this file "backup_snapshot_for_v18_upgrade".

 

Now my question is what the heck is this file? Do I need to worry that there is a mitm? Or it is something that Windows 7 does by itself. Worth to mention that I have encryption on my computer (PGP Desktop) could it be something that it does? Sometimes I see copied & cut files/folders and I know that I haven't done them. I don't know if I am a little too much paranoid or there is something in the PC.

 

Edit: I restored the file from trash and there is snapshot.db, snapshot.db-shm & snapshot.db-wal files inside the folder.

Otherwise Delete the folder.
