I have my automotive data on my OS HD and during the last few Windows installs have just installed without formatting.
This puts the old Windows into those Windows.old, Windows.old.001,
Windows.old.002 folders....well you get the idea.
I was at some point going to just delete the old install folders.
However, there are now 6 (30GB) of them (don't laugh) and its been an interesting fight to delete them.
Whatever the current OS was (XP,Vista, etc), it never let me delete them as it knew they were VERY important and therefore it was absolutely out of the question that I be allowed to delete these old folders.
In keeping with tradition, Windows 7 does not trust me either.
I have tried everything I can think of...
Gave myself permisions, took ownership, ran explorer as Admin, Command Prompt (As Admin)...no go.
Well I am open to suggestions.
How can I convince Windows that I am worthy of deleting?
Thanks in advance
