I couldn’t sort out my Win Update properly (it wouldn’t install SP1) on my laptop.
In the end, I decided to do a new Win-7 install. This did enable me to install SP1, but as I didn’t have a cure, I’m expecting something similar in the future.
Now though, I have folders called windows.old & windows.old.000.
If I have this right, the system puts the ‘old’ version back on, so that we have a copy to go back to if we need to ?
At the moment, this is just a back-up machine, which I am upgrading bit by bit.
In this case, I did a new install, & am putting the few programs that I had installed on, afresh.
Do I actually need windows.old ?
After that, what is windows.old.000 – and do I need that ?
Next quest is “backing-up”, but I’ll start another post.
