I recently installed Ghost 15 to manage my system backups, primarily as my OS drive has insufficient space to create mirror images, (ie 197GB free space of 465GB), However my Internal Backup drive also is running out of space in that it has only 563GB of free space of 1.81TB.

One option to mind is to reduce the size of my Backup 2 TB Drive by deleting old Windows backups, yet after deleting as many win7 backups as possible I am still left with a large accumulation of files on this device, most of which are unrecognizable to me. :(

Checking the size of each file on the backup disk suggests all win7 folders are empty, Are these hidden files ? which doesn't account for the near 1 TB of used space unaccounted for !

I am reluctant to delete the old WIN 7 folders incase I ever have to revert to WIN 7 backup .

What are my options please
