Locked Data Folder?
« on: 2016-04-11 15:49:15 »
Someone on ID reported that they couldn't access their Data folder for FF7 Steam, that it caused some kind of hard lock on their computer. They've tried reinstalling the game, but to no avail. Has anyone heard of something like this happening before? I thought it might be memory corruption, or some sort of security issue.

I've never heard of such a thing, but it kinda smells like a hardware error to me (or at least a messed up windows install). Merely accessing a folder should not do that.

Yeah, it does sound like it or maybe a registry error of some kind. I'll pass on the bad news.
