    Reclaim space on hdd


    I need to reclaim some space on the hard drive that my Windows 10 is installed on this pc.

    There is a Windows.old.000 folder (13.2 GB)

    and a

    Windows.old folder (9.09 GB).

    Can I still use Disk Cleanup with Windows 10 to do this, and is it ok to do it?

    Did you upgrade twice? Just use the clean up tool and click include system files... and see what it gives as an option, it mostly will just delete the .old one or the .000 vice versa.

    I didn't upgrade twice..... just a prior Windows 7 user who downloaded Windows 10 to the computer using the Media Creation Tool. I wonder if some of that was left over from prior Windows 7 residual? Anyway, it's all gone now.
    Thanks!
