Except for 2-3 (pretty much the difference between the 19-22 figure in the question), they are all essential. Process Explorer dumps 3 (by configuration, Network, Disk & CPU). The core temperatures take up another 4, antivirus is another, volume, VPN, Sandboxie, AutoHotkey, Safely Remove Hardware, etc.

comment NTFS Permissions - Folders and subfolders
@grawity: I know it's accessible. It's just that full path part. I'm curious if there is a way to determine the full path when it is not known.
