    I upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows ME about a year ago. Havign not used my home computer much lately, I decided it was time to clean house, so to speak. I started deleting a slew of programs I didn't need anymore and I noticed a directory _restore. It is hidden and rather large. I decided to delete it, but the system tells me it is in use. I have attached a file with a jpeg of the _restore directory. I only have a 4 gig harddrive, so this folder takes up about 1/4 of that! What iss it and what can I do to get rid of it?
