Old disk structure usually means he has ran a "non destructive recovery" which supposedly backs up data and stores it in to a folder called "old disk structure"

I guess the only way to delete this is to do a complete over all of your system and wipe it clean.

deleting old disk structure

I have the same problem. On the system (XP) partition now I have six files named old disk structure. They take about 10 Giga of my system disk. I try to delete them but this is not possible.
Can anybody help me how to do this?? Deleting the partition should be the last.

I could not delete my old disk structure for years but just downloaded TreeSize Free and deleted part of it. Then I went in to folders and deleted almost all of it. I had to do it a few times but much easier then anything else I tried and failed at.
