Windows Server 2012 R2 / Windows 10 - Remove the Windows.old Folder from Windows 10 Across the Domain?


  • Hi All,

    Following the Windows 10 Enterprise update 10586 I have a Windows.old folder on all of my machines.

    how can I delete this using GPO? I had a simple delete script but this throws 'Access is Denied' when it runs.

    Any suggestions on how I can remove this folder as it takes up and additional 15GB per machine.

    I don’t want to have to manually do this...

    Thanks in advance.
