PostSubject: Windows.old Remover   Sat Oct 29, 2011 3:08 pm



Introduction
Windows.old Remover is a program that locates and deleted the "Windows.old" folder left behind after upgrading to the Windows 7 Operating System. The "Windows.old" folder's size is large (or small, depending on how much disk space you used before you upgraded) and is sometimes a burden. The Disk Cleanup coded by Microsoft themselves would search for other files and folders including the "Windows.old" folder, thus would take a longer time. Therefore, I have coded this program to quicken the process of searching for the "Windows.old" folder (with its content) and deleting it.

Instructions
1) Choose your drive and click on the "Find Now!" button to start looking for existing "Windows.old" folders. (It may show 'Not Responding', but it's still working.
2) There should be one "Windows.old" folder if you have re-formatted before.
3) Click on the folder listed.
4) Right click and jump to the location of the folder to make sure it is the right one.
5) Click on the "Delete" button to delete "Windows.old" folder.

Copy/Move:
1) Select the paths needed (kinda self-explanatory).
2) Click the "COPY" or "MOVE" button depending on which you want.
- COPY will copy the folder to your destination.
- MOVE will copy the folder to your destination AND DELETE THE ORIGINAL ONE
(recommended to do it 2 or more times as some files are stubborn most of the time).

Note 1:
You can remove ALL "Windows.old" folders found with the "Delete ALL" button.


Changelog
Version 2.00:
- Added Copy/Move function

Click to Download!

Virus Scan (It's detected because of the Copy/Move function, which moves folder all around :p)
