    What is Windows10Upgrade folder and how to delete Windows10Upgrade folder in Windows 10


    The "C:\Windows10Upgrade" folder is created when you install the Windows 10 Update Assistant to update to the latest version of Windows 10.

    The "C:\Windows10Upgrade" folder is usually only around 19.9 MB in size, and contains the program files for the Windows 10 Update Assistant app.

    If you no longer need the Windows 10 Update Assistant app, then you can just uninstall it to safely delete the "C:\Windows10Upgrade" folder.

    This tutorial will show you how to safely delete the "C:\Windows10Upgrade" folder in Windows 10.

    Yes, the folder is usually 19.9 MB, unless you roll back the feature update. In which case, it can be like this:

    Two days ego on my Lenovo T430, by mistake, the 1903 version was installed. I forgot to update the policy for feature updates.

    There has been couple of issues, that I didn't feel like hunting down and fix, just rolled back to 1809 version. After looking through the file system, Windows10Upgrade folder size of 3.25 GB seemed out of whack.

    Thanks for this and other tutorials, certainly better than most MS, or anyone else...

    It looks like it may contain the Windows 10 installation files for it to be that large.
