WINDOWS 10 C DRIVE FOLDER WITH RANDOM CHARACTERS

I recently found a folder in my C drive called "u,Rx5g[_8gN!1Hh12W" (without the quotes of course). It's over 61GB in size. It has a number of files inside that are all apparently 221184KB in size each (see image below). Does anyone know what this is for?  It's taking up a lot of space.  Thanks!

Answer

You could use Bitlocker, or TrueCrypt / Veracrypt, as something like eraser will not protect the files you are actively using (which are probably the most sensitive), but only the files you deleted.

An SSD with hardware encryption has good performance with the additional benefit of a really fast and secure erase of all the data.
