Hi,

I notice there is a folder on the C:\ drive named WIMAPPLY.

Does anybody know what it was or is used for, or if it's safe to just delete it and all of the contents inside of it?

Thanks

No clue on that... I just checked my C: drive and I do not have that folder in there and I am still in stock format without doing a clean win install. It must be from something you installed on there.

A quick google search on Wimapply comes up with this:

Well I had to reinstall everything using the backup discks that i created for this laptop on day one, and was guessing that's what this is from perhaps since it does have some ASUS named items inside of it.

I guess until there is a definitive answer, I'll simply rename it and see if anything breaks over the next few days and if not, then I'll just delete it.

Ahhh, that's it then... If you did a reinstall from a backup that makes sense. Reading some of those things in google it seems that it is an imaging file probably from the backup.
