    $getcurrent


    I just deleted this folder as I didn't recognize it and it had a relatively new creation date. and I removed it from the recycle bin. am I going to have a problem with it, and any idea what it is related to.

    Hello

    I believe this folder is created during an upgrade. No harm done!

    i have also this folder on C:\............. i can remove or not ? What's your exact scope ?

    Inside this folder there's somethigs like a ISO of windows in a "media" folder............. in a "SafeOS" apparently there's some .cmd for post installation or somethigs similar..... also there's present a log whit date 08 Sept. 2016.

    I have also tryed to found by google..... there's so many thread on same forum but no of one can make a usefull answer to this question.

    And if yes........ i can simply deleted this folder by Explorer or need to use some tools ?

    *edit*
    a most recent thread whit similar question:
    [Newbie]can i/should i remove "C:\$GetCurrent"

    It's say simply yes... but no explain because i have this folder and if it's needed and what's i need ?

My windows.old folder disappeared today. From what I have read this is expected behaviour. But folder $GetCurrent is still there? I tried Disk Cleanup, but, there is no option for 'Previous windows installations'? So can I delete $GetCurrent...
