    There are a lot of files taking up space, such as c:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig%\
    directory and a bunch of windows update files such as
    c:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB282010$\ etc.

    Izzit safe to delete those?

    Wondering if I shud just archive them just to be safe?

    TIA

    Hello,

    Yes it should be safe. However those things can be removed from your
    control panel - Add/Remove programs. Those directorys are just
    uninstall files for product updates, windows patches, etc..
