Closed Can I delete this folder without any troubles? Tags: Windows 7 Format Last response: March 15, 2012 11:13 AM in Windows 7 Share starcore March 5, 2012 2:27:09 PM I have done a format with windows 7 ultimate. When you do the format it makes a folder labeled Windows.old. I took everything i needed out of the folder. Is it safe to delete it? I know this is a dumb question, i am sure it is ok. I just want to be sure. Thank you for your time i hope you have a wonderful day More about : delete folder troubles Best solution mryoink March 5, 2012 2:35:09 PM It's basically just a backup when you reinstall windows on a partition that already had a windows folder, it's safe to delete it since you already got what ya needed.
