    They are likely drivers that are still in use.

    Cheers,
    Unfortunately, I cannot because as soon as I double-click in that .old folder and then to the one inside it, Windows Explorer crashes. I am sure though, that there must be some left-overs from my NVIDIA driver in there. I could uninstall the driver, delete Windows.old and then clean-install it again. The point is that this, and the other issues, were not happening in previous Insider previews, but... oh well, no worries.

    How often does W10 check for updates by itself. I know mine checks shortly after boot up after that I do the manual method.

    I believe that this depends from the Automatic Maintenance settings. Twice a day, I think. I've changed the time to a more reasonable hour of the day (in which my computer runs).

    Hi,
    @Joanne:

    I could uninstall the driver, delete Windows.old and then clean-install it again.
    That's what I would have suggested. Explorer crashed on me too when I tried to access that folder.
    Once I took ownership it was fine. It's still a bug though.

    Cheers,

    Installed without difficulty, this time I had no trouble with the "flight" upgrade and did not have to go the .esd-.iso route (as I had to do to install the last two builds as the flight upgrade didn't work in either case.)

    In my case, the persistent files in windows.old are audio drivers. In particular, intcDAudio.sys. It is owned by Trusted Installer so can't be deleted. If you gain ownership and try to delete it it says it is in use. Bit strange as that file is in system32/Drivers so no idea why it isn't being used from there.

    Deleting from a boot CD fixes it but really can't be bothered as it appears next install!

    Just a quirk.

    These are the Intel Display Audio drivers.
    It's simple enough to solve. In Device manager, Sound Video and Game controllers select Intel Display Audio. Uninstall and tick the box that reads " Delete the driver software for this device".
    Leave Device manager open.
    Once done delete the drivers in "Windows.old".
    Back in Device manager right click on "Desktop......." and let it scan for hardware changes.
    Et voila the drivers are back but W10 is now using the proper ones.

    O and yes, next update of IP same story again.

    Thanks for the elucidation. Like I said, I usually can't be bothered messing with it but now I know a better way I might just do it more often!
