    User profile over 70GB, repetitive long directory names


    This seems bad, and I'm concerned something is wrong with the way the OS is behaving. Can't delete the many too-long profile directories in backups. Is this symptomatic of some future failure?

    No malware. This is a directory junction issue that's apparently quite common, which I only partly understand.
