    Does Win10 clean up installation files at 30 day limit

    I intend to keep Win10 after upgrading from Win7.
    At the automatic removal of Windows.old after 30 days, are the Win10 installation files removed too?
    Should I defrag my main drive and use clean-up software to tidy up? I need to keep my old data files and software.

    If you need to keep them, copy them somewhere else, preferably and external hard drive or large USB flash drive.
