Hi,

 

Thank you for the post.

 

Windows Vista and 7 setup log files are located in different locations on the hard disk. The Panther directory is one of them.

 

If you performed an upgrade installation of Windows the Panther folder can easily fill up multiple gigabytes. Deleting (or renaming it at first) showed no negative effects.

 

C:\Windows\Panther directory is used during the installation of Windows.
