About Me

Found 1 result

  1. I have a file named C:\$WINDOWS.~BT which is 25 GB. I've searched on the Web and found that it is a backup of previous Windows system(s) in case one wants to regress. I don't want to regress, but I would like to recover 25 GB on my C: disk. I have found a number of Web entries that purport to tell you how to get rid of it, but they don't work for me. In particular, the System section of Disk Cleanup does not show a "Temporary Windows Installation Files" option. I have tried various other ways to delete this folder but nothing has worked. Can anybody help?
