    Remove the $windows.~BT and windows.old directories


    Hi

    It is possible to remove the $windows.~BT and windows.old directories using the installation DVD of Windows 10 or using its advanced startup options via them Command Prompt? If so, how I do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello balubeto, :)

    You could use an option in the tutorial below to delete the Windows.old and $Windows.~BT folders. Option 4 is the best one if available for you.

    Option 3 for what you requested at boot, but Option 4 is the best to use if available.
