Have no idea what this folder is on my C: root. It's empty. Google search comes up blank which is strange. Thanks

    This same folder (also empty) was created yesterday at 5:20pm EST under C:. I was alerted by our file system monitor. I can confidently say this did not appear from anyone doing a deployment, update, etc. on my team. I'm seeing others on the internet report this folder also within the last 5 days. My server is a Windows Server 2016 running Exchange Server 2016. I have other Window Server 2016s but none of them have had the folder appear yet. I have only one instance of Exchange Server 2016 running.

    From the looks of it and lack of anything in any search engine, it most likely has to do with a temp folder created from a deployment in your environment.

    Check with your team if anyone used it as a temporary storage when installing or pushing a change.

    So Heather and I are the only people in the world that have noticed this mysterious folder appearing? It's weird that nobody seems to know anything about it.
