Windows Old folder on C drive

My Lenova tablet has just updated windows 10 to the latest version. Is it safe to delete the "Windows Old" folder that is residing on C drive and taking up valuable space, please?

Double check there is nothing in there you require the users folders should be a duplicate of what now in the windows folder.

Once deleted you cannot go back to the older version.

Don't just delete it, its important to follow the instructions here

Delete Windows.Old folder

I just did mine today along with lots of other stuff and my laptop is working so much faster.

Disk clean up will get rid of it eventually but if you delete it before the month is up you may not be able to go back to your old version of Windows if you have problems so you will be stuck on W10.
