    The tutorial includes guiding you through dealing with this**. There is no need to use any third-party utilties for this job. Given your reported symptoms, the $WINDOWS.~BT folder is not the only thing taking up unwanted storage space.

    ** In File explorer, right-click on C, click on Properties, click on Disk cleanup, click on Clean up system files, set every checkbox except any that worry you [such as the Downloads entry], click on OK. Go away and have a whole pot of tea instead of staring at the screen all day waiting for it to complete.

    disk cleanup offers to free up a maximum of 57MB only. addition of system files clean up adds another 6.02 GB. I am going to try that one. Thank you Denis for all of your inputs.
