Windows 7: Deleting Windows old folders after reinstalling question

Deleting Windows old folders after reinstalling question

After finally getting my reinstall activated, I opened C drive and found windows old and windows old .000 or something like that and deleted them both. Did I do this correctly or did I screw up? Everything seems to be functioning fine but, if there's a possibility I might have problems down the line, I'd just as soon correct things now. Thanks.

Hello p5200,

Nope. You did it correctly. You get the Windows.old.000 folder if you already had a Windows.old folder from a previous upgrade or repair install. That's all.
