    How to delete the windows.old folders

    I found a source. The old windows.old folders can not be deleted easily. But the empty windows.old folders can easily be deleted by using a Software tool "Puran Delete Empty Folders".

    Thanks for all who suggested me to delete the windows.old folders from C.Drive.

    If you want to go back to what you had before do not delete that folder. If you are sure you will never want to go back then delete that folder. Device Manager should be in Control Panel.
