    Win.Old


    Hello
    I upgraded from Win 7 to Win8, and now have a folder named Win.Old listed in Windows explorer.
    It takes up 156 MB of space and the correct folder(User) which is similar, takes up 570MB of space.
    I guess I installed over rather than cleanly.
    Should/can this Win.Old be removed or left as is.?
    Thank you
    Peter

    Thank you for the help. I waited about a month to be sure all is well.
    I noticed I lost all restore points except todays and one a long time ago.
    I guess that is a necessary side effect.
