Hello pauLoz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, it will not cause any issues. The Windows.old folder only contains a copy of your previous installation, and has no affect on the current one other than the amount of HDD space it uses.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Argh! Can't add to your reputation on this thread!

Thank you Brink for going above and beyond the call of duty to provide tutorials such as this (and the many others that I link unsavvy users to) that are very easy to follow for even the totally clueless.
