Hi,
I wasn't able to boot an old windows xp computer, so I installed windows xp over it. Now I have a Windows directory and a Windows0 directory, and probably other oddities/duplicatons. What can I safely remove?
Thanks,

"I was told that it's a system folder and cannot be deleted"

Ok shakushinnen, that tells us, that is where XP is currently running from.

When you are sure everything is Ok, you can delete Windows0 ( o = old )

Hi John,
When I went to delete the Windows.0 folder, I was told that it's a system folder and cannot be deleted. However, it would have allowed me to delete the Windows folder.
