Can you just save all the files you need and just format it....Thats the best way I think.

true even if you delete the previous versions there will still be a lot of used space that can be cleared up a save a and format is the best way to do it a fresh install of win 7 ultimate should only take about 12-13gb of space

I think it wont let you delete the previous versions folder

I had this as well at my first install LOL

 

might be the best way to format and install again...

You should be able to delete the previous version files.  However, it's best to do a format before installing a new OS.
