Hi Scott,

I just found a couple of stray text files on my backup (E:\) hard drive and I was curious as to why they are there. I'm assuming they're installation notes that should have been deleted, but I'm not sure. (I built a new computer on April 9th, the date the two files were created.) One of the files, titled "RHDSetup," is obviously connected to the installation of Realtek HD audio drivers. Here is what it contains:

[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=0
[Install Progress]
Confirm Realtek Driver
Check Operation System Version
Realtek HD Audio Driver WDM Directory Exist .
delete E:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\InstallShield
Copy Realtek HD Audio Driver from WDM Directory
Install Realtek HD Audio Audio Driver
--> SetupAPI result LAAW_PARAMETERS.nLaunchResult = -4
Copy Audio Driver to each correct location from Driver Directory


The other file is a bit more mysterious to me. It is simply titled "service." Here it is:

Just before processing loop...
Type=60,Port=b2,BiosAddr=dfeed402
Current=0.000000,Total=0.000000,MaxVid=1.287500,Rev=0x20

Into service control...
Stopping...
Exit main while loop!!


Do you have any idea what these are from and why they were left on my backup hard drive?

I appreciate your help.

-Brad

They are files created by software/drivers you have installed and/or run. Either you or the program that created them obviously copied them to your backup drive. Scott.

Am I correct in assuming that I don't need them?

Yes indeed, they look like log files which are no longer necessary. I would delete them. Scott.
