Tip of the Day: Windows.old

Today’s tip…

After an upgrade Windows.Old is left on the disk. To manually remove Windows.old you need to use Disk Cleanup. After 4 weeks, a scheduled task will run and delete the Windows.Old directory if you have not removed it via Disk Cleanup.

To use Disk Cleanup on Windows Server 2012, you need to enable Desktop Experience feature.
