Windows 7: Problems after installation on a SSD

I re-installed w7 not as an upgrade and activation worked. The W7 I enjoy is back.

I didn't change a thing about the SSD partition. But let me tell that now I have the full measure of its performance. My previous installation was flawed. Speed improvement is obvious.

Icing on the cake I was also finally able to install (where my troubles got worse) my dual TV PC tuner (analog+digital) ATI 650 and it works as much beautifully as my Hauppage ones on my 2 others W7 computer.

Another question related to my installation.

On my SSD drives I see in addtion to the windows folder;
windows.old
windows.old.000
windows.old.001

The three folders eat 35Gb out of my 120Gb SSD! Can I eliminate the 2 oldest (.old and .000) and move the .001 to my auxiliary HD and move it back temporary if I need to reinstall/repair?

After you're sure you have everything you need (which should have been backed up separately) then you can delete the windows.old folders.

Did you not boot the installer to do the clean install as you should?

I'd post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk mgmt drive map with listings so we can look it over for you to make sure the config is correct.
