Old contains all your old files. If you are all backed up you can delete
Windows.old Folder - Delete
May I suggest that you do the much better install a clean install. It does not leave windows.old and gets rid of all the problems from the first OS.

Jenna because you had been sold a bootleg Win7 I suggested you wipe the HD first to get any possible infected code out of the boot sector. At the minimum the installer should have been booted and not run from the old bootleg OS, as it was if you now have a Windows.old folder.
In your previous thread I gave you the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
Why were these steps not followed?
You can delete the windows.old folder after you're sure you have everything out of it you need.
