“I just upgraded to Windows 10 last week. Even though, this new OS felt comfortable for me, I couldn’t afford limited availability of data on C drive due to its installation. Later, I could understand that it is because of the huge size of Windows old folder, C drive is having this size. So, I just deleted this folder using Shift + Delete.
