    Fresh Install of windows 10 & windows.old seems huge but I can't acces


    Fresh Install of windows 10 & windows.old seems huge but I can't access anything in it, the folders are empty and there barely anything to view. No music, nothing was backed up but folder size would indicate there is a tonne of stuff in there. Can anyone help?

    Thanks'

    :)

    You could run TreeSize Free as administrator. It will tell you what is taking the space.

    If you don't need it you can delete it by running disk cleanup.
