How to remove Windows.old folder in Windows 10

Today everyone upgraded to Windows 10 from your previous version of Windows OS. This upgrading process will not only keep your files and programs from your previous versions but also keeps some of the OS files in a folder named Windows.old. Windows.old folder takes a lot of memory of at most 20 GB roughly. Neither the old OS files are useful nor the memory taken by it.

20 GB isn’t a small chunk of memory to leave it off. Those who really care about this amount of space better take a step forward to delete Windows.old folder.

Yes, this is possible with a simple way that I’ve discussed in this article How to remove Windows.old folder in Windows 10 by just following the below steps.

Step 1. First of all go to This PC > Right-click on Local Disk (C:) > Properties > Disk cleanup.

Step 2. Now click on “Clean up system files” button and that will scan for the unnecessary files on the drive with administrator rights.

Step 3. Now select the “Previous Windows installation(s)” folder and click ‘Ok’. It’ll then show you a warning saying that you can’t downgrade to the previous version of windows once deleted.

Step 4. Now Click  OK to proceed.

Step 5. That’s it! Now check out your Local Disk (C): now. You’ll find the partition remaining the approx 20 GB.
