    Windows.old


    When is it safe to delete the Windows.old folder after recent upgrade to 1511 Build 10586.17 or will Windows do this
    automatically at some tine in the near future?

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    You can run - disk cleanup > clean system files

    to remove all the un-needed installer folders / files

    If everything is working fine after the update, I run disk cleanup/clean system files and delete it.
