    windows old


    I have upgraded twice to 9879, starting with a clean install, and looking through C, I find Windows Old. This refuses to uninstall, any tips?

    Success! I had forgotten disk cleanup, at first it refused to run, second attempt was fine. I removed about 3.6gb. I had tried to delete directly from a right click on the highlighted Windows Old.

    The Windows 10 bugs thread spans more than one build, over 400 replies. My problems are on build 9879. I think the bugs should be carefully segregated by build or they are meaningless.

    CCleaner will also do the job:
