    windows 8.1

    can I delete Windows10Upgrade after upgrading to windows 10


    After successful upgrading to windows 10 I was left with 3 folders that weren't in system disk before:
    Windows10Upgrade
    $GetCurrent
    inetpub
    they're not big but I don't like redundant folders
    I did few times Disk Cleanup after system cleanup
    so maybe they're needed but for what?
    thank you

    This is the information for inetpub:
    That folder is, by default, the public web root for the built-in Windows web server, called Internet Information Services (IIS). Anything you place on that folder is served by IIS as your web server content pages and downloads.

    Do you plan to use the computer as a web server? If not, just go to Windows features and untick IIS, reboot and delete the folder afterwards if it's there.
    As for the other two folders, I don't have them on my computer. They seem to be temporary folders used for the upgrade. I would delete them.

    It is under Programs and Features. Then in the left column click on Turn Windows features on or off.
