    How do you delete Windows.old folder after update?


    Insider updates from 10130 to 10158 to 10159 to 10162 in fairly quick succession, and tried to delete Windows.old. After an age at 98%, then having to manually skip a load of stuff, it still seems as full as ever.
    Is there an easy way to remove the folder?
