Re: Creation of weird WINDOWS-related (sub)directories

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

I doubt it is due to a cygwin program.
"consoleX" does not appear in the package search
https://cygwin.com/cgi-bin2/package-grep.cgi

Unintentionally I have confounded the discussion. The directory named
"consoleX" is my home-grown Cygwin root directory.
(Others' preferred locationname might be "cygwin" or "mycygwin" or
whatever.)
The directory %SystemDrive% occurs at the root of the Cygwin filesystem.
I cannot work out what activity has triggered it .. ..

I will bet a Windows Programs as on CMD

  C:\Users\Marco>echo %SystemDrive%
  C:

so %SystemDrive%/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches
is likely C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Caches
