How to Safety Remove or Delete Previous Windows Installation

If you install Windows 10 by performing a custom installation or new Windows build update and don't format the partition during the installation process, files that were used in your previous version of Windows are stored in the Windows.old folder. The type of files in this folder depends on your computer. After you’ve used Windows 10 for a while—for example, one or two weeks—and you’re confident that your files and settings are back to where you want them to be, you can safely reclaim disk space by using Disk Cleanup to delete the Windows.old folder.

Warning!! Before you use Disk Cleanup, make sure that all of your files and settings are in Windows 10 where you expect them to be. Deleting the Windows.old folder can’t be undone.

1. Open Disk Cleanup by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Disk Cleanup, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Cleanup.

If you're prompted to choose a drive, click the drive you just installed Windows on, and then click OK.

2. In the Disk Cleanup dialog box, on the Disk Cleanup tab, click Clean up system files.

If you're again prompted to choose a drive, click the drive you just installed Windows on, and then click OK.

3. Select the Previous Windows installation(s) check box, and any other check boxes for the files you want to delete  like Windows temporary installation file, and then click OK.

4. In the message that appears, click Delete Files.
