You do not get a windows.old folder if you had properly removed Windows 7 and reformatted. However, you can still remove the folder.

You need to follow the instructions I made in [u:cik9sqv1]this post[/url:cik9sqv1][/u:cik9sqv1]. I was helping someone copy folders instead of delete them, but the process is the same.

I would highly recommend however that you do not install and use windows 8 pre-release builds as your main operating system. It is at an alpha level of code completion, and bugs and glitches will be common. You wont be able to get much support if something goes wrong.

Anyhow, let me know if you need any more info.
