C:\windows\assembly repost on rec.

on my Win2K machine I have

MyComputer/explore navigate to c:\winnt\assembly in left pane and see

c:\
|-Winnt
|-Assembly
|-Download

But on my XP machine I have

c:\
|-Winnt
|-Assembly
|-Download
|-Download
|-Download etc too many levels to track

I am concerned about crosslinked directories, chkdsk /f found no problem;
OTOH, explorer (and maybe chkdsk) are showing things not as they are. If I try to examine these directory entries from cmd window I get this on Win2K

cd\windows\assembly
dir
results in listing 3 directories, GAC, Native Images1, and temp

(no download) on the XP machine its GAC, Native Images1, Native Images2, temp, and tmp.

Should I continue to be concerned or this quirky but cool?

Quirky but cool. Rename or delete desktop.ini and it goes away (i.e. explorer shows what cmd shows).
