Re: Need to do a complete wipe of the hard disc and reinstall of ALL programmes. What's the best procedure?

I already have 3 SSDs in the machine, so no point in buying a new drive. System restore does not seem to be working on my machine along with other stuff.

Re: Re-install of W10 created Widows.Old file that I cant delete!

I tried going through the settings>storage options.

I always get the error that those files require me to have admin access. I AM logged in as an Admin. So I can't understand why it will not allow me the access to delete those files.
