Creation of weird WINDOWS-related (sub)directories




Just noticed: strange directory %SystemDrive% created at root of Cygwin
installation:
As in:

/consoleX/%SystemDrive%
        /consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData
        /consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft
        /consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows
        /consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches
 
/consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches/cversions.2.db
 
/consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches/{69CFC75E-EC11-
4152-A489-8B4850814862}.2.ver0x0000000000000001.db
 
/consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches/{6AF0698E-D558-
4F6E-9B3C-3716689AF493}.2.ver0x0000000000000001.db
 
/consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches/{9BF0A9D6-626F-
4F67-8DFA-14BFC3D7213A}.2.ver0x0000000000000001.db
 
/consoleX/%SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches/{DDF571F2-BE98-
426D-8288-1A9A39C3FDA2}.2.ver0x0000000000000001.db

Any ideas why? .. how to prevent?
Thank you!
Fergus
