i wanted to delete my laptop hard drive and reinstall the os that came on the media with the laptop originally.
i booted from the windows disk and reinstalled windows but this did not delete my hard drive and even worse it made a windows.old folder with all my old junk on my c drive
how do i get a clean/ deleted c drive with new install of my os?
i have a small 120 Gig solid state hard drive with just one partition. i would like to create two partitions on the new install.
my main issue is not being able to get a clean install such that the result is a pure windows laptop with no junk files that have accumulated over time.
