    How to delete old windows file/folder


    Hi,

    I just upgraded my Windows 8 OS to Windows 10 and it has left :

    Old.windows folder

    with many included files on my Harddrive. I have already backed up and transferred all the files I wanted to keep from that old version and wish to delete that file and all that is in it. But it seems not to allow me to do that. I have tried numerous times with Admin privileges and it still will not allow be to delete.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks
