Previous Windows Install Files - Safe to Delete?

  tomraffe 22:59 18 Aug 2008

When using the Windows Disk Cleanup I get 32GB of previous Windows installation files (after upgrading from XP to Vista). I did the upgrade several months ago and am happy with Vista! Is it safe to delete these files?

If Cleanup is showing them I would say Yes but there will be no going back once they are gone

What purpose do they currently serve? Just to allow me to easily revert back to XP?

I would think so, however you could copy them to a External Drive or put them on DVD so you could put them back on the Drive if you wanted to
