    Hey there, you are correct in that when CAM is uninstalled it will remove the files inside the NZXT folder. Do you remember the directory in which you installed CAM? That could play a factor as well. I do apologize for issue you are going through.

    I have just now discovered the cause of this issue. Whilst clearing out my hard drives I used WInDirStat to see what unecessary files may be taking up a lot of space and discovered a folder named AI_RecycleBin. This folder was not in the directory in Windows Explorer and was taking up 59.9 GB. After looking inside it I discovered all my old software from before I uninstalled CAM. I have googled the name of this folder with CAM after it and have seen a few other similar cases of this folder being made and moving their files after uninstalling CAM. I may be late on bringing this to you but there is no question that this issue was caused by your software.

    I due to limited space on my C drive as it is an ssd I usually install my programs into a separate HDD in a basic folder labeled software. There is nothing special about this folder and can't think of anything that could have caused this, CAM was also originally installed to that folder about a week or two ago. The only thing I did on my computer before all my programs disappeared was install that update and then uninstall it due to the mess it made in the folder. When you uninstall CAM is it programmed to just delete all filed in the folder it is located in because that is the only explanation that comes to mind?
