Threaded View
In the past week, something on my HD hads been generating several instances
of a file named cmsstorage.lst.  It appears in 1/2 dozen folders and when
deleted it reappears a few minutes later.  It appears to contain 0 bytes
and has the hidden attribute set.

Norton AV doesn't flag it, nor does Registry Mechanic find anything

There is a backup products company, CMS Storage, but I have none of their
products and they deny knowledge.

Does anyone know what this is and what's generating it/how to remove it?

All advice will be most appreciated.

Do you use a backup program from Seagate?

Thank you for your reply.  I do not.
I have just now identified the source if not the delete solution.
It turns out that an old Microsoft group of programs that was distributed
with a Kodak digital cameraa I bought 7 years ago is responsible.  
"PictureIt" ver 2.0 is the culprit.  But when one uninstalls it, the files
are still gereated.  Just an annoyance now.

Thanks again for your reply.

Use Your Uninstall to completely remove those old Kodak programs. It not
only removes the program (with Uninstall), it also removes registry
keys, and left-over files that Uninstall doesn't touch. Free evaluation
copy allows three Uninstalls per use. Paid copy is worth every penny if
you have a mess of old stuff hanging around, and/or test install a lot
of programs.

.. or use Revo Uninstaller ( /), which is
freeware and does the same thing but without that limitation.
