It’s going to take how long to delete!?!

I was trying to delete the Windows.Old folder that the Vista Beta installer creates (containing my old Windows, Program Files and Documents and Settings folders), just to create a bit of extra space. I don’t know if there’s a “better” way to delete it, but I just tried deleting it from Explorer.

Well... after about 10 minutes of “calculating time remaining” it popped up with this:

Worrying Vista progress dialog

7 days?! To delete a fair number of files, to be sure, but come on! Needless to say, I clicked on “Cancel.” I suppose I’ll delete it from the command prompt now, eh?

P.S. I promise to have more content than just my rantings soon ;)
