    system recovery files folder deletion


    i have recently installed windows 8.1 and i just realized that i have a folder of system recovery files which was o windows 7. i have tried to delete them through disk clean up but no luck.

    i have tried to delete them but it tells me that i need adminstrator permission which i am the adminstrator.

    they use a lot of space on my pc about 30gb.

    please help to remove them

    thanks
