Unable to delete back-up files
Recently I reinstalled Vista. The installation backed-up my previous files &
OS. Now I wish to delete these files. Each time I try I'm told I need
permission, but I am the administrator. Any help will be gratly appreaciated.

Re: Unable to delete back-up files
Use Disk Cleanup.

In Computer, right click on the C: drive, select Properties and on the General
tab, press the "Disk Cleanup" button.

Or Start > All Programs >Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup

P.S. Do not check the Hibernation File Cleaner unless you do not plan to use
hibernation. (Although it can be re=enabled.)
