    SIMS - Random Question

    Randomly I've noticed a picture, slightly blurred of some people is swimwear jumping off some cliffs in front of a waterfall, the path is <sims drive>:\sims\setups\New Image.jpg

    Now according to the security the file is owned by the <servername>\administrators group and was created 9th june 2008.

    Does anyone else have this file? Is it a splash screen on something that I've never noticed? The fact that it's owner is a admin group not a user is a bit concerning...

    Random answer - since Windows tends to remember the location of your last save and sends you there for the next one; could be that someone was copy/pasting a pic (family hols?) to use in something and it happened to save to that path. Tech whiling away the time whilst doing a SIMS update?

    Well the woman that spotted it was using tesco picture manager, however...
    I should still be able to look at the (NTFS) owner and see who created it but the owner is the server admins group... It's really strange.

    The only person doing SIMS updates is me so I doubt it.

    any clues in the advanced properties field, e.g. make model of camera used to take it, date of capture etc...
    unlikely to be a viral thing, so maybe a bit of detective work can reveal the source...
