Hi all, After having reinstalled W10 I find that I now have 2 and sometimes 3 icons to chose from at startup before the desktop. If I press the wrong icon I am taken to a Recovery options page. If I press the Default ( mine is partition 4) then all is well and it boots into the desktop and works as it should. In W7 I was able to just delete Windows.old without any problems. I was also able to edit the Boot.ini file to eliminate more than 1 copy appearing at Boot Time!
However if I try to delete Windows.old in W10 there seems to be a lot more security involved even though I am the administrator. When I was able to delete just SOME of Windows.old I restarted my machine and was only able to get as far as the PC Recovery screen. I was not able to get back into Windows 10 at all. Another Hard Lesson Learned! The cause of my problem is having tampered with Windows.old. Why does it cause such havoc and why can't it be deleted to reclaim valuable Hard Disk space? Can you guide me in the right direction Please, Regards, Laurie
