Hey,

Along with the installation came a host of "Windows.old.0011-003 Files". Is it imperative that I maintain these files or can I safely delete them because they are cluttering up my system. It has taken 7 disk to complete a full backup. If its possible to delete these files, I would appreciate some direction as to how to accomplish this.

This is my first time participating in a forum. I trust I am in compliance with your rules.

hi.if you backed up your personal data before the reinstall you should be OK to delete the windows.old folder created when you reinstalled vista

just to support caperjack who has been around the block a lot.
Any '.old' file is a file that an program has kept in case anything goes wrong with its installation / update/ configuration. (and you wish to revert to the previous state of play.) Once all is well follow caperjacks advice and delete.!
