    Don't know about this Windows10 upgrade, my guess is it contains W10 downloaded from somewhere.
    Other ones I don't know what they are all about, never had any of them.
    Hiberfill file is used to hibernate computer and if you don't do that can be removed by entering following line in Command prompt (as administrator) powercfg.exe /hibernate off
    Pagefile and swapfile are used by windows for virtual memory and size can be adjusted depending how much RAM you have.
    ------------------------
    I canceled power & sleep in settings (i.e. never, never & high performance)
    but couldn't delete hiberfil
    tried powercfg and got an error message:
    unexpected error (0x65b) Function failed during execution
    maybe after a restart

    Only if you start from command prompt or from Run, no need from disk properties.
