Delete windows.old

Posted: 06-25-2006, 02:25 PM
We all have a directory called windows.old and in it are all our old
programs. I would rather just re-install all that stuf and totally get rid of
any reference to my old windows setup if that is at all possible and wise.
I dont want to just go and delete a bunch of folders only to find out doing
so will make my system crash.

Is there any information about this windows.old directory!!!

Hi,

I think the Windows.old directory is incase you want to go back to your
previous O/S - you should be able to delete it no problems.

DOn't forget your documents & settings are in there, I.E. your music,
pictures and document files.
