    I might copy all the old files to my external hard drive. Thanks for the information.

    Not a good idea so i just went ahead and removed the old Win7&Win8.1 program files on both ASUS G73 systems.

    If you don't revert back to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 after a month, the Windows.Old folder with auto delete itself automatically.
