I am reposting this as it went by without any notice, and I want to get to the bottom of this config.msi folder. (All my searches relate this folder to MS Office).
I have been cleaning up my hard disk of folders left behind by ununstalled programs, & I've come across the "config.MSI" folder which contains nearly 4gb of data. I've checked on the net and discover that this folder is created by MS and the files are "roll-back script" files for Office 2000. Well, this is a mystery-I have never had MS Office on my computer (or any of it's components). I can only presume that it is to do with other progs/installations.
In fact, of the 4gb of files, all but one are dated the same month and of these, 95% on the same day, within the same hour. This leads me to recall that I reformatted my hard disk around that time (I think) (next time I'll make note of it!). Could these files relate to a Windows installation?
Can anyone explain this, and is it allright for me to delete the files or the folder itself?
Thanks for the tip-I never read forum instructions, I'm normally too busy, or could be impatience!
Thanks for yr help..but are you sure they might not be necessary for uninstalling something or other some time in the future? And what can they be, since I have never had any Office/Word/Excel, etc. on this computer?
I can find nowhere that talks about config.msi other than relating to MS Office!!
