    No need for the sad face though. Your good intention was noticed.

    Yes, but ...

    The install is what creates the windows.old folder.
    It should be on C:\ and it might be a hidden system file. Change the folder options to view hidden files/folders and also show system folder / files.

    You can also try this method to run Disk Cleanup:
    Disk Cleanup : Extended - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Win8 and Win10 are actually very small, base install is less than 10 GB, my systems only consume between 12 and 16 GB, but all of my user data is stored on another partition.

    When you're doing system maintenance, most processes require elevated privileges to do the heavy lifting (Run as Administrator...)

    Owps. I said "disk cleanup". I meant to say "diskpart". And I did it with Shift + F10 before Win10 installation, so there's no way for a Windows.old to exist on an SSD that's basically like new.

    The problem with pagefile when it is system managed it is made bigger by windows OK but sometimes it never seems to shrink it again. Therefore resetting it and then putting it back to system managed would be interesting. Like I said mine (system managed) is 2.1GB which is more reasonable than 16GB (generally speaking). I have the same amount of RAM.
    Yes, the pagefile will increase in size after a crash if system managed. See my post here to reset it http://www.eightforums.com/performan...ter-crash.html
