    Cheers. This finally worked. After taking ownership, you can even just delete it like any other folder. Saved 16GB on my dads (who is 82 yrs) laptop.

    In that case, boot from your installation media to open a command prompt at boot to see if you may be able to delete the folder. This way it's outside the OS environment when trying.
