Having recently upgraded my laptop W7 to W8 I have a file called "windows .old" as this is rather a large file I thought it was possible to delete it, I have tried but it keeps asking me it needs the adminastrator and also the systems permission ?? so will not delete it. can anyone tell me if it is safe to delete, and how to do it. I have all the necessary backups in place should anything go wrong.
