    Run Disk Cleanup.

    The one at the top contains your previous Windows install files, similar to Windows.old in prev versions (you'll have both in the newest upgrade). Do not delete it for a few days in case you need to roll back due to an unexpected issue. It will delete itself after 10 days or if you're sure that the upgrade is running properly, you can delete it yourself running disk cleanup, as prev suggested, and get back the space.
