Hi everyone! I am currently using Windows 7 Build 7264 (x86).
My C:\ partition has a total of 29 GB, and my D:\ partition has a total of 157 GB. My C:\ parition (Windows, Program Files... system things) is only 11.8 GB free at the moment, so, in order to upgrade to 7600, I need 16 GB.
I have recently noticed two folders in C:\, which are kinda large...
One is $INPLACE.~TR (572 MB) and one is $WINDOWS.~Q (1.66 GB).
Instead of creating a pattern to explain you the contents of each folders (which took me 15 minutes to do, failed -->), I'm gonna give 2 URLs, each for each folders (expanded).
URL to $INPLACE.~TR : RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
Media folder is in C:\Windows\Media (same size). Dunno about System32, but I bet the thing I have in this $INPLACE.~TR strange folder is a duplicate or at least a part of what is in the real Windows folder.

Each .jpg can be downloaded 10 times, after that, I'll have to upload them again (unless I get a proper answer
Don't say "Your OS is <censored> up". It's not. I just cut the parts you don't need :P .
So, can anybody help me? There is about 2 GB in those two folders, space which I really need. Since "Media" is also in C:\Windows" (same goes for "ProgramData", "Program Files", "Users" etc. )... Are these two folder useless or not? Can I delete them?
Their properties are set to hidden, not system. My Folder Options are "Show hidden files and folders" and "Hide system protected files", so, these two folders appear as hidden, but not as system, meaning their deleting should not be dangerous... But anyway... It's better to ask first
So, the main idea (in case you didn't got it yet - this post even got ME confused lol) is : are these two folders safe to delete or not?
