Win2K update folders $NtUninstallQ#####$

By steve.doig ·
The folders generated after applying updates to Windows, $NtUninstallQ######$, take up about 46 MB on my machine. I know it's not huge, but are these files needed only in an emergency? I've encountered no problems so far; is it safe to remove them, and how to?

Cheers

They're only needed if you plan to uninstall a service pack and revert to an earlier one. How likely is that? Nuke 'em. Just delete them normally.
