Windows.old location?

Can someone please point me to the .old folder? I have searched but can't seem to locate it. My disk cleanup is showing it's there.

Have a look at this Microsoft article.

If you read through it, it does suggest where the Windows.old folder should be - typically under your C drive.

Hi toughbook

It is under Local Disk C://Windows

(C) would be replaced with whatever driver you are using for your operating system.

Good luck,

Windows.old Location
I did a clean install using an upgrade to a new harddrive. Win XP was on the C drive. Should I have a win.old somewhere or by doing a clean install there wouldn't be one? Thanks
