    Windows 10

    removing Previous Window Installation and Temporary Windows Installati


    My laptop was upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I've decided to stay with Windows 10.

    So, is it safe to now delete the following folders (See image):
    - "Previous Windows Installation" folder
    - "Temporary Windows Installation" folder

    I think they include the Windows.old folder. If not, can it be deleted too?
    Do I need to save any data files from the Windows.old folder?

    Thanks.

    I always click everything - keeping stuff is for real experts with very specific reasons. Never ever had a problem.

    Does delete windows.old - remember you cannot rollback in 30 days though.

    "Previous Windows Installation" = windows.old
    "Temporary Windows Installation" = downloaded installation file (~Bt.... ) folder.
