$WINDOWS.~Q - What is this folder for?
A new folder, $WINDOWS.~Q, was created after I had my computer upgraded from
Windows XP to Vista Ultimate.
Do I need to keep this folder, or Can I delete this folder?

Thanks to all advance.

Re: $WINDOWS.~Q - What is this folder for?
If you absolutely know you will no longer need any of the files from your
in-place upgrade (files saved from the old system such as: My Documents, My
Music, etc. that the upgrade moved into here because it could not figure out
where to put them) then you can delete these two directories:

$WINDOWS.~Q
$INPLACE.~TR

Or use Windows Cleanup:
You can use the Disk Cleanup tool to permanently delete the folders, click
to select Files discarded by Windows Upgrade in the Files to delete list.
