When I installed win98 it asked me if I wanted to save my win95 and dos system files. I said yes. Then another time I reinstalled win98 and said yes again. I thought It would over write my files but instead I have another 50mg on my disk. Where can I find these files so that I can delete them.

Choose Start... Accessories... System Tools... Maintenance Wizard
This will allow you to set up a couple different things.. One of them is to search the HD and find files you don't need or want... It will ask you of you want to keep your old Backup or not...
