I have a fresh install of Windows7 on my 120Gb SSD and after running Windir found I have a sub directory named Windows old which is using 47GB, the question is can I safely delete it:confused:

The Windows.old folder contains a copy of the old installation of Windows - if there is nothing in there you want to keep, you can delete it. :)

Run cleanmgr see if it comes up in that. if it does tick it, it'll remove it

Yeah what pcuser42 said, it's your old windows install. Check and make sure you've got your docs out of it, then just nuke it :)
