    Hello John,

    I find Option 4 in the tutorial below is the best way to remove the Windows.old folder.

    Were you able to turn off Fast Startup?

    What happened when you tried to delete the Windows.old folder? You will need to be signed in as an administrator to be able to.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

    Are you able to close windows to see?

    Were you ever able to delete the Windows.old folder using any of the options in the tutorial I posted?

    Unfortunately there are greater problems than trying to remove windows.old. Take 2 pictures with a camera: the first one of the result when trying to turn off fast start and the second one of the full screen of windows. Go to another computer, create screenshots from those pictures.

    Information on why a repair install was necessary might be helpful also.
