Delete the Windows.old folder automatically

If you choose to install them 10 στον δίσκο όπου υπάρχει ήδη μια υπάρχουσα εγκατάσταση, το πρόγραμμα εγκατάστασης θα μετονομάσει τον φάκελο των παλιών Windοws σε Windows.old στο root του σας. Αυτός ο φάκελος θα περιέχει ένα πλήρες αντίγραφο ασφαλείας της προηγούμενης εγκατάστασης των Windοws 8 ή Windοws 7. Ο φάκελος περιλαμβάνει επίσης το boot manager και τις εγκατεστημένες εφαρμογές σας.windows tools

This feature is very convenient if you plan to uninstall your current installed version Windows and return to the previous installed version. It may also be useful if you have forgotten to transfer some files or settings to the new installation.

However, if you've finished with all of this, then the Windows.old folder only captures your disk space for no reason.

Below we describe how to delete it using built-in Window tools instead of simply deleting the folder from Explorer.

Press the two Win + R keys together and type the following command in the RUN box that will appear:run disk


Cleanmgr will appear. Turn right on it and select “Run as administrator”. When the application opens, wait until it finishes calculating your disk space.
Scroll down, at the end of the options list you will find it ς της προηγούμενης εγκατάστασης των Windοws. Επιλέξτε τη και κάντε κλικ στο OK.


You have finished, of course you can also manually delete the C: \ Windows.old folder, but Disk Cleanup will automatically resolve the NTFS access permissions and delete all files that are not accessible from your account.

In the event of a manual deletion, you must resolve these permissions, otherwise you will not be able to delete all the files in the C: \ Windows.old folder. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
