    Could someone please tell me how to delete/remove a win8old folder (on C:\ drive). Have tried Disc cleanup, all options to clean are there, not 'remove previous windows installation'. Any help appreciated.Thank you

    You have a folder in your C: drive named Win8old? What is the size and what is in the folder? Please provide a screenshot and please run the system info utility then post the results:

    Thank you so much for answering, I managed to finally delete this folder using an Unlocker and TAKE ownership. Win8old seems to have been created by an earlier installation of Win 8 ? (I think). I can now mark this as Solved. Many thanks.
