Windows 10: Left over files?

    Left over files?


    Hey,
    Does anyone know where the left over files and/or folders are when you install a program after you've uninstalled, I am now using Revo but I am not convinced that all files are deleted before the use of Revo.


    Thank you.

    Depending on the type of application/program, they could be in a number of locations; most likely 'Program Files', Program Files(86), 'Program Data', Users/AppData-Local, Local Low and Roaming.
    You may have to 'dig' for some to find them all.

    Thanks Edwin, found a few unused folders from programs, but I know they're lurking somewhere else.

    Thanks for the tip.
