Steps to reproduce

When we run some IE plugin on IE protected mode(IE option->security), we found some files stored on C:\Users\Philipp\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Virtualized\C\ProgramData\Microsoft\PlayReady. we are wondering why Virtualized folder exist, we assume in IE protected mode, files can’t be written on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Playready, and will be redirection to Virtualized path. So how windows get the Virtualized path? Where to config Virtualized path?Thanks.
Best regards.
