thpinpostlogoUpgrading to Windows 8.1 leaves behind files that you can optionally clean up after install.
*Warning – See How to remove the Windows.old folder

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

Here are the 2 folders that can be deleted:
win81cleanup_1

 

Run Disk Cleanup. Press the Windows + R keys, type cleanmgr

win81cleanup_2

 

Click Clean up system files.

win81cleanup_3

 

Click OK

win81cleanup_2

 

Check the boxes next to:
Previous Windows installations (this is Windows.old folder)
Temporary Windows installation files ( this is the $Windows.~BT folder)

Click OK. When finished reboot.

win81cleanup_4
