    Delete $SysReset folder in Windows 10

    Unable to remove $SysReset

    Here's a description of what it is:
    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-i...-in-windows-10

    If you can't delete it (although the article suggests you should be able to), then like anything else you can delete it when Windows is not running.

    You can:
    - Boot your PC to a command prompt (via SHIFT click Restart) and follow the prompts through to get to a command prompt.
    That's if you're confident in using the command prompt, and noting that the drive letter will not then be C:
    - Boot your PC from a Win 10 bootable disk and via 'Repair your computer' navigate to a command prompt.
    - boot your PC from a bootable disk such as Kyhi's, available from the top of the Software and Apps section here, and use a Win 10 environment, again noting it won't be on C:
    - install a program such as this (free)
    MoveOnBoot Free - Rename/Move/Delete Locked Files on Reboot
    - which also deletes files and folders when restarting.

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink Delete $SysReset folder in Windows 10 ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
