Regain Space After Update in Windows 10 [Tweak]

Let me get it straight. Either you were excited for the Windows 10 anniversary update or it was forced upon your PC like the Windows 10 upgrade nag-ware that we saw a whole year on our Windows 7 and 8. But boy is your C: filled up after the update. The problem is general when we install a new Windows OS without actually cleaning out the old files. But removing it isn’t as simple as deleting your ex’s photographs when moving to a new relationship. To give some breathing space to your drives follow these steps to delete temporary files (windows.old) without a hiccup.

1. Open settings on your PC, you will find this option in your start menu.

2. Go to System and then Storage option. Open the drive on which you have your windows installed (C: in most cases).

3. You would find an option labelled Temporary Files clicking on which would take you to a new screen with the option of deleting previous versions of windows.

Just tick the check box and boom, watch your files go when you press that delete button.
That’s it. Let me know in the comments if you need any help with anything else in this new update or your new phone, laptop or even your dishwasher, Kernel Ketchup would come to your rescue.

PS: Remove the temporary files (windows.old) only when your are sure that you don’t need to revert back to the old version.
