Last night I was installing Windows 7on my desktop. Well, honestly speaking, I was installing Windows after a year and so was a bit careful so that I don’t do anything that might corrupt my hard disk. I already had bad experience with Windows Vista Home Basic, which I had tried to install on my Lappy (that was the first time that I had installed an OS) and unfortunately, my Windows files were overwritten and my hard disk, thus corrupted.
So this time I wanted to be extra careful and so preferred to take help from Chetan bro and Srikar bro (thank you brothers!). The installation seemed to have completed without any hitches but however, when I saw my C-Drive, I realized that a ‘Windows.old’ folder had been created. This contained all the old program files, which were of no use and amounted to 22 GB data (OH! :O) of my disk space.
That folder had to be deleted not only because of the huge disk space that it had consumed, but also because it was slowing down my computer, making me impossible to install any application.
After a long search on Internet, I found an application that could delete any folder within seconds. At first, I thought that this could be a potential malware as I felt that an application of 700KB could in no way delete a folder of 22GB. But I didn’t have any other option, so I just decided to go ahead and try it. Surprise! Surprise! I was amazed to see that my 22GB worth useless data was erased in just three minutes. Thats’ really really fast!
The name of the application is Fast Folder Eraser. It can delete any type of file and even a folder infected by virus. It is a mere 736KB and after installation would take up an overall disk space of just 1.4 MB Overall I felt that this was an application worth downloading 🙂
I was happy that this time I didn’t face any problem while installing Windows7 like problems I faced while installing Ubuntu and Windows Vista.
I would suggest you to try and use this application. You can download the app from here (safe and secure).
