Correcting an XP Duplicate

  Stoneywood 20:27 08 Jan 2014

Following a confusing reinstal of XP, I appear to have two XP operating systems on the same drive.

This works ok. Asks me to choose at bootup.

Does anyone know how much disc space this second OS is taking up?

And how I could uninstall, without damageing the favoured drive?

Thank for that Jock1e

My problem is that they both have the exact same title and I don't want to make the mistake of getting rid of the OS on which I have loaded my apps, email etc. DGB

Look on the drive how are the tow windows versions listed? c:\windows and c:\windows.001?

Looking at contents of Drive C, I see no duplicates.

So I am going to leave "well enough" alone.
