    Leftover Folder after Creator upgrade

    Disk cleanup did remove \Windows Old, but there is another folder.
    Running Pro and the folder is C:\windows10upgrade
    Does anyone else have this and what to do with it ? Only has 19 mb in it.

    Hello Ken, :)

    When you install the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant, it will create a C:\Windows10Upgrade folder. If you like, you can uninstall Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant to remove this folder.
