    Windows old


    I've just looked at what's on C drive and the Windows old runs to about 11gb. When I go to properties-disk clean up as I have done before, the Windows old is nowhere to be seen. Anybody know where it's hiding?

    I couldn't get Windows.old folder to delete in any method in the OP of that thread. It kept saying access was denied by I'm the only account in the pc. I used ccleaner and checked the option under advanced to delete the old windows folder and left everything else default. Rebooted and windows would not start up. Just got black screen after HP bios. Startup Repair would not work either. Having to restore from HP recovery windows 8.1 and may upgrade again after 10s been out a little while
