Dont know if im posting in the right place.. but i got XP and everytime i startup my computer, my total file count increases by about 8 files. I cant find these new files. Ive unhidden all folders.. and totalled all the files on my C drive... there is 53410 files. When i go into defrag and analyse... it shows 56714 files.. and a MFT record count of 60271. If i reboot and analyse again.. there is an additional 8 files... every reboot increases the file count. Is this an XP thing? Why is my computer creating new files that i dont know about and cant find?
