My dad’s PC has a 120GB HD which is about what he needs. I saw today that 18 are occupied by $WINDOWS ~BT which to the best of my knowledge is a renmant from upgrading the from 8 to 10 that was done a couple of years ago or more.
I really want to get rid of it. I tried disk cleanup which failed the first time, and now it won’t detect this folder at all. I can’t do it manually from file expolerer - I get a message saying I need builtin permission.
I found this command online:
takeown /F C:$Windows.~BT* /R /A
icacls C:$Windows.~BT*.* /T /grant administrators:F
rmdir /S /Q C:$Windows.~BT\
But that gets rejected as well: “Access is denied”.
