This is a followup to an earlier thread...for various reasons involving a new MB installation, I ended up with my new, current version of windows installed to c:\windows1. My original install is to C;\windows. After I pull anything useful from that directory, is it safe to delete it? I'm short on space, and don't need confusion, so I'd like to just delete it all if I can do so safely. I know i'll have access problems and have to assume ownership, but I can deal with that, as long as some small file isn't required to boot or something silly like that from my original install. Otherwise I'll just live with it somehow - get a larger harddrive, etc.
