    Delete Windows BT file


    Hi so I'm thinking of this weekend finally updating my windows version from 1809, but I have an issue I have about 20 GB's of space taken from a previous failed installed 1903 update back in September and I'd like to get rid of it.

    Disk Cleanup won't show the file and I downloaded TakeOwnershipPro but that was taking too long and doing the CMD wasn't working either. (See below)

    So any other ideas I can do before I finally install my new windows version?
    takeown /F C:\$Windows.~WS\* /R /A
    icacls C:\$Windows.~WS\*.* /T /grant administrators:F
    rmdir /S /Q C:\$Windows.~WS\

    :)

    I deleted $Windows~.BT folder that was propably Windows 10 files. How to recover?

    Hello,

    So about two weeks ago I deleted a $Windows~.BT folder (through the cmd). Now I know that was Windows 10 files ready for install.

    How can I download it again? I'm sure I need to reinstall some update. But which?

    The Windows $BT folder is there in case you want to recover the old OS. It's not needed for an upgrade.
