Windows 7: Windows.old Location

Windows.old Location

I did a clean install using an upgrade to a new harddrive. Win XP was on the C drive. Should I have a win.old somewhere or by doing a clean install there wouldn't be one? Thanks

No...doing a clean install will not give you that folder

I did a custom install (clean) from Windows XP and I have a Windows.old folder. Don't know why you don't.
