So I went in and took permission over windows.old and deleted it using shredder.. I did this after downloading a new version of windows and it told me I needed 4 more gigs. This is right after I did a system recovery to get more space just to download the update!! Well anyways now in stuck on the automatic repair and was wondering if there is a simple fix to this. I copyed the windows.old folder to an external hard drive but like a dumb ass I didn't do the whole system backup... Didn't think I'd need it.
