Are you in C:\ when you run the command? Seemed to work for others on the page. But then they probably didn't combine other folders into it.

Hello Nikosps,

In addition, you might also see if the tutorial below may be able to better help with how to delete the Windows.old folder. If you do this in a command prompt, you will need to be sure to use the full name of the folder that you want to delete.

Windows.old Folder - Delete

Hope this helps,
Shawn
