    Hi Fellow RT User,

    Do you have windows.old folder on your Surface? It's Almost 6GB on my space :)! Does anyone bother to delete this?

    I know it can be deleted but would it be recommended?

    thanks!

    Delete it through disk cleanup. You will lose your old Windows restore points, but you don't need them. Within Disk Cleanup you will have to select view System files. The just select the box to delete windows.old
