My computer was just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and I'm wondering if the folders in the subject are necessary. Does anyone know if they can be removed?

1. This note is for system.sav:
"The system.sav folder is specific to Compaq/HP systems. As there are differences in the restore procedure in different models of Compaq/HP systems, it's best advisable to refer the user manual to know if those folders can be deleted. In mosts cases, you should not, unless you're 100% sure that you possess the OEM Restore CD (different from a OEM Recovery CD).
Having said that, please contact the OEM support for more accurate information in this regard.

2. And for C:\SWAetup:
I think this will popup again, again and again anytime you upgrade/update the software. Unless it too big, I wouldn't bother to delete it but may delete old files in it.

Thanks for the reply. There were some other folders and files that appeared to be a result of the setup process not cleaning up after itself. I deleted them (but did not empty the trash) and rebooted. None were recreated and there weren't any error messages. So far so good.
