Hi,

I have a new SSD with Windows on it. I put the SSD from my old computer with Windows on it in my new one. I am now trying to delete all the Windows files on the old SSD to clear up space but I'm not allowed to. I followed a guide to do it through cmd with admin rights but that does not work either.

Any ideas?

Hi, create a folder called Windows.old on the old SSD. Move the Windows folder, Program Files folders, etc to that Windows.old folder. Open Disk Cleanup and be sure to choose the old drive. Choose Clean up System Files and delete the Previous Windows Installations.
