    For anybody having trouble deleting Windows.old Folder

    Hi! OzAussie

    Thanks for posting in the Community forum. As one solution may not work and one may. Makes the issue relevant. W10 settings > storage is meant to remove the old windows. So the issue would be what caused the issue in the first place. What was the difference
    between those that did and those that didn't so it works all.

    For anybody having trouble deleting Windows.old Folder

    A lot of people are asking how to and are having trouble deleting the Windows.old folder from their computers to free up the space. After trying many suggestions posted on here which did not work, I finally found a Free program called "Iobit Unlocker" which
    I downloaded and used and it deleted the Windows.old folder in seconds without any problems !! Link is below.

    Hi Dave222 and welcome to Tenforums.

    I can't tell for sure, because the left column isn't wide enough, but it looks like that folder may be a "recent" folder, and not necessarily really there? It says it's on drive H - do you have drive H connected at the moment?
