Auto-creation of folders: compressed, documents, music, programs, videos

#1 Post by Newzilla2019 » 2019-10-10 12:43

Some app is auto creating sub-folders in my (Windows 10) Downloads folder: compressed, documents, music, programs, videos.

The folders keep reappearing after I delete them.

I'm assuming they're being created by Filezilla because I can't think of any other app on my PC that would be doing this. But I can't find anything online about this - related to Filezilla or any other app.

Can anyone confirm whether it's Filezilla creating these files? And if so, how can I disable this.

If not Filezilla, does someone have any ideas what else might be doing it?

FileZilla does never, ever, create files or directory on its own.

Maybe some sync software, like OneDrive. Windows 10 itself also has the capability of syncing, especially if you have an MS account.
