  1. Hi people,

    There are folders that appeared after I upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I assume there are update folders?

    But they seem pretty distracting to me, so is it ok if I delete them?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi . I don't think those are update folders. Create a back up image with a 3rd party program. Then you can delete away. I back up image gives you the piece of mind that you can restore your PC back exactly like it was the day you created the image.
    Here's whats on my drive. Here's a good link by TS. https://www.techspot.com/guides/1219-delete-windows-old-folder/

    Hi holdum323,

    Thank you for your response. I'll try back it up first.

    Hi Thank you for the update. Knowing I have a backup image ready to restore back exactly like it was the day I created it, makes me a fearless Windows user. I preach this every time the opportunity arises.;)It's sad , but users don't listen and then they lose valuable things when a disaster happens. and spend hours restoring their PC's.
