    I have just noticed a folder on my system drive called bootwiz. In it there is one file asrm.bin. I have recently uninstalled Acronis TI and installed Paragon. Is this an Acronis folder or Paragon? And is it necessary or can it be deleted?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, but when I try to delete the file it says it's in use and can't be deleted. How can I get around this?

    Is Acronis OS Selector running, or is installed still? Contact their tech support and or check in their forums how to remove it to be safe

    You could try from an Administrator Command Prompt.

    I would recommend that you uninstall OSS if you're not using it. There's also a Windows service for it that gets installed (Acronis OS Selector activator) -- make sure it gets removed or disabled also.

    The bootwiz folder is also created when you activate the ASRM feature of TI and has nothing to do with OSS.

    If you can't delete it normally, you could try doing it from a Windows installation DVD Command Prompt or from a Live Linux CD (Windows won't be running to block it).
