    Unnecessary Folders

    Since system update / upgrade failed several times, there are four folders created on the system disk, they are:
    1) $GetCurrent2) $WINDOWS.~BT3) $Windows.~WS4) Windows10Upgrade (this one is quit big)
    and I would like to get rid of them, would like to have your opinion about this.
    Answers will be appreciated

    If you get rid of them, they will be recreated and Windows upgrade re-downloaded again.

    You can certainly remove them, the best way is with the built in clean manager program and click on clean up system files.

    Bare in mind that often the windows installer will copy your user files/folders into one of these temporary places so it can restore them after the procedure. If your happy that your user files are properly where they should be, by all means go ahead and run the cleaner.
