    Rolled back to wds 8.1 ...!


    Hi All .
    I have rolled back to my "Snappy" wds 8.1 --- and yet I'd made a copy of wds10 and Imaged it .."In case" ..
    ..and it shows in C drive a "windows" folder ." Just like when you upgrade to w10 ..with windows old folder"
    Can I delete it ...?

    Rolled back to wds 8.1 ...!-2015-08-08_10-04-34.png
    Thanks ..

    When I ran system clean up ...it showed up .. and I cleaned it .. "Nothing bad happen yet .."
    Got my 20GB back ...
    Im on 265GB SSD .. so I really need it .
    (BTW ..I'm extremely happy to roll back to w8.1 ..so much better ..took me a long time to set up all programs and settings )

    Thanks

    You may have cleaned up C:\Windows.old but not C:\Windows. You can't, that's where the operating system lives mostly. Delete that you have nothing and I don't see how Windows itself would let you delete it.

    Sort of like the picture of a guy out on a tree limb sawing off the limb between himself and the trunk!
