  • Application Data folder recursion under a Junction

    I am working on a server (Windows Small Business Server 200 and have uncovered an issue where there is multiple occurence of a folder under the junction "Local Settings".

    e.g. 'C:\Users\Admin\Local Settings\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\'

    Is it safe to delete the local settings junction point and reset it up?
    I am guessing that it would be ok because what showed up the issue was a backup error that indicated that filename was too long. So, any application dealing with it would be unable to use anything that far down.
    I have a vague (and probably inaccurate) recollection that there were not supposed to be folders under a junction?

    Kind regards and thanks for help.

    A sample of folders at the end of the recursion include:
    \Microsoft\Feeds\Microsoft Feeds~\
    \Microsoft\Feeds\
    \Microsoft\Feeds Cache\KKMB557D\
    \Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStore\
    \Microsoft\Internet Explorer\iconcache\
    \Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\
    \Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery\
    \Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\
    \Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Cache\
    \Microsoft\Windows\1033\
    \Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\
    \Microsoft\Windows\History\History.IE5\
    \Microsoft\Windows\SchCache\
    \Microsoft\Windows\
    \Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\
