    One of the folders can be deleted manually with the right click feature. Sorry that I didn't mention that earlier.

    After upgrading. It is always bettter to run Disk Cleanup in extended mode and it'll show a lot more options and prompt you to delete all the remmants.
    Open Admin Command Prompt and run:
    %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Example of Disk Cleanup Extended mode, 25 options. Check them all except Windows Setup Log File:

    @BunnyJ
    You're welcome. In addition, also run from Admin Command Prompt:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    To delete all the obsolete store components. You'll be surprised that you can reclaim quite a bit of space.

    I used Unlocker to get rid of $Windows.~BT and $Windows.~WS. I always have Unlocker installed so using it for stuff like this has become automatic.
