I have installing Windows 10, but after installing Windows 10 lot of storage can be used than before. It is due to window up gradation. When I restart my laptop there are two windows appear on startup one is windows 10 and second is windows old. When I install and upgrade a new version of window the previous version could not be remove or deleted and keep as it in the local disk C. what process can I used to remove this query.

Windows old is a copy of your old operating system and files. Once you are sure that you have everything you need in the new environment you can delete the Windows Old folder. If you have any problem with the deletion, boot into safe mode and accomplish the task.

What dicke said is correct but the file will automatically disappear in 30 days anyway.
