    Win.old removal

    How is the best way to remove the win.old folder from my hard drive. It was created by upgrading from
    version 9841 to 9860 in windows 10 tech preview.

    Type Disk Cleanup in the taskbar search
    Right click Disk Cleanup (in the resulting list), run as administrator
    tick all of the boxes
    (you should see preview or eval versions, previous versions, and windows update clean up) perhaps worded fifferently, but you'll know when you see them. I tick everything when I clean up - your machine, your choice on what to clean up.
    click OK
