    Fresh Install of windows 10 & windows.old seems huge but I can't acces


    Fresh Install of windows 10 & windows.old seems huge but I can't access anything in it, the folders are empty and there barely anything to view. No music, nothing was backed up but folder size would indicate there is a tonne of stuff in there. Can anyone help?

    Thanks'

    :)

    Hello,I didin't upgrade my windows,i installed directly when i got my new pc,

    but today i did an huge update version 1709 and the windows.old folder now has around 12Gb....

    i don't know how long the windows.old folder was there but now it has 12Gb...

    You could run TreeSize Free as administrator. It will tell you what is taking the space.

    If you don't need it you can delete it by running disk cleanup.
