    Updated, no hitch. I haven't done Disk cleanup from 291 yet but there is only one windows.old folder so old one was removed in the update process.

    Great!

    If Windows can automatically clean up and delete the original windows.old folder it does that and a new one will be created for preserving the current state of files before the actual upgrade is committed. I don't recall ever having something like Windows.old and Windows.old.old...or similar. :)

    To be honest I have newer seen windows.old2 on W10 but was common on W7. I usually clean up as soon as update is finished but also keep ISO so I can reverse if necessary.

    Very smooth upgrade to 16294.1. OS is very fast and responsive. Now for Hyper-V and WSL.

    In the early days I had Windows.old and Windows.old1 etc but I clear mine now.

    Mmm! A slow one this time. Nearly 5 hours to the desktop. Get your act together MS.

    Not so. Windows.old is a very old feature of Windows - goes back to Windows XP if not earlier. I just clean it first thing. However as I have demonstrated if you have a smaller disk drive you may not be able to update until you remove programs/features which can be very tedious. One should have the option as to whether to create Windows.old in the first place. My last upgrade to the current Canary for rs3 16294.1 from 16288.1 had to clear around 24 GB of old windows installations. I just don't look back unless, like now, a branch (Skippy) is essentially dead.

    That is a very bad idea, hopefully it will be not implemented. If the upgrade fails for any reason, Windows would have no way to cancel the upgrade and restore the previous version.
