Question fer the computer folks!!!

Thanks,

Jason

Jason, you can happily delete the OLD file without ill effects on Windows 7.

It is a copy of the Windows XP installation which is, for want of a better term, incompatible with win 7.

Win 7 is based on Vista architecture and Vista itself was a totally new O/s (with some boring exceptions) with little in common with Win XP.

SO delete away and enjoy your 90Gb of space freely!

Dont forget to do regular defrags too tho :)

A nice piece of trail software you may want to play with. > http://www.perfectdisk.com/home

defrags as well as optimises the placement of commonly used files as well as moving system files like MFT to front of drive.
