Why do I have Program Files and Program Files (86) ?

I have Windows 7.  My C drive is almost completely full.  On my last PC I had less hard drive and it never came close to being full.  Do I need Program Files & P. Files (86)?  And why do I have both?

Answer 1

The Reason for your machine having both "Program files  and Program Files (86)" is your machine is 64-bit machine. On 64-bit machines the system files will be in "Program Files (86)". You Require both. Kind Regards Wintestlogo Team
