    Hello guys,

    I would like to know which application created a specific folder without trial and error testing.

    I already scanned console for any hints for the folder to no avail.

    Ideas?

    I already found the answer in this case, but the question still stands as this is an issue I'd like to tackle in future still. :)

    (Independent from looking up solutions in Google, as often such folders have common names or paths or are all too customized)

    Without knowing which folder it is, there's no simple answer.

    Oh ok then, thought that application file system access might be logged somewhere/it's verbose-able on regular logs.

    Thanks anyways then! :)
