    Disk cleanup System files Windows ESD Installation folder not listed


    I want to run disk cleanup tool in Windows 10 after latest update. After windows calculated and showed the amount of space that can be saved for each folder under Systems , I could not find the folder "Windows ESD Installation " . Is this a problem? Where is the folder ? Tks

    Did you check "Clean up system files" ?

    Yes, I did check "Clean up System Files" ... which was why I asked the question. The Windows ESD file is not listed after windows went through the calculation. The largest file is the "Previous Windows Installation file ( 27.7GB ) " . All other files are small.

    Once update is finished updating ESDs and other files used for updating are moved to windows.old and cleaned away with it.

    So it's safe to clean the File " Previous Windows Installations" since I am satisfied with the latest Windows upgrade and don't intend to downgrade ?

    Yes sure but it would also do it automatically 10 days after installation.
