I just bought an Acer Aspire 5551. Nifty little laptop, great price.

Last night, I tried Acer Backup Manager for the first time. Besides taking hellish long (compared to SyncBack), it also created a folder .BackupManager in every folder on my C:\ drive!!! What a mess. I would like to delete all occurrences of this folder, and the files inside.

Any ideas how I can accomplish this?

You can search (Win-F) for .BackupManager and delete all instances you find from the search result.

It doesn't seem to be showing any results. The folders are set to 'hidden'. Is there a way to make hidden folders appear in search results too? –  love4tech Aug 10 '10 at 6:42
Ok, I figured it out. I had to open C:\ folder, and search from there. Thanks! –  love4tech Aug 10 '10 at 6:53
