    Windows Old Folder


    Hi,

    Can someone confirm if I can delete the the "Windows Old" folder that was created in Windows 8 after I refreshed Windows 8?

    I would be grateful if someone could please confirm that this can be deleted or not as its taking up a lot of space.

    Thanks

    Hello wizkid,

    Yes, if there's nothing in it you would like copy out of it, then it's safe to delete. It's just a copy of your previous installation's files.
