So i simply completed upgrading a dozen exhausting drives. went by way of the method of migrating all the info. was nearly to complete up when one thing unrelated drew my consideration to this portion of the registry.
I seen that many of those keys had no such string (UtmItemId) nonetheless those that did, referenced an previous location.
W~G:Dragon Age - Originsbin_shipDAOrigins.exe for instance. Now this recreation was at one time on my G drive. That was 2 drives in the past nonetheless. It seemingly skipped the drive I simply migrated from I: and it’s now at S:StandardDragon Age – Originsbin_shipDAOrigins.exe which is correctly proven by the MatchedExeFullPath string.
I do not know what the UtmItemId string is, a lot much less what W~ signifies apart from the actual fact its pointing to a really previous location. Unsure if that is tethered elsewhere, or its some kinda “look right here if its not in xx location” kind factor? Deprecated even because it didnt replace to the middleman path.
I wish to clear these out, however dont wish to break something within the course of. Can anybody enlighten me on their operate and the security of their elimination?
