    Question Windows Old Files

    I few months ago I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7.

    Running Tuneuputilities I've noticed that Windows Old files are 20+gig.

    Can I delete these files without causing any problems .?

    Cheers,

    S.

    Yes, you can delete them without issues. If you haven't had the need for whatever is inside that folder until now, seems you won't need it in the future, either.

    Question

    Hi, Sorry to be a pain,

    I've just had Tuneuputilities annalize both C & D Drives, "see links", & I can see that both have a file called "Windows" on.

    Would I be right by using the Disk Cleanup on C Drive.?

    I know Windows old is on C, but I'm uncertain to where Windows 7 is installed.

    Thanks,

    S.

    If you open a command prompt and type %systemdrive%, you will be redirected to the system32 folder, under the folder and drive where your system is installed.
