I had to reformat my Hard drive a few days ago. I installed win7 with the SP1 included. I discovered, almost too late, that durring the install, the old files got stored on the C drive. If there is a folder on any of your PCs taking up space, that folder is alot of dead weight. Deleting the "Windows.old" file folder will free up the space taken by it, Believe me, that folder can be very large. My partition space was down to 88MB before windows warned about low disk space.
This can and probably will crash the OS after a while,
I did a clean install, so why and how it got put there is a mystery to me.
It is safe to do away with that folder if it exists on your PC. Windows will not delete any files that are in use.
