I successfully upgraded my Surface 3 to Windows 10. The upgrade went very well. I decided to do disk cleanup and chose to delete the old windows files.
Disk cleanup did a very good job of getting rid of all the old stuff, but for some reason, some files in the Windows.old directory did not get removed.
I tried to remove the directory myself manually, but I get the following message:
"The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program."
I've tried restarting but still I can't delete these files.
I really don't believe these files are actually in use by some process because I am able to move and rename them without a problem. But I just can't delete them.
The files are all .sys files. They appear to be driver related - for things like the pen, type cover, and camera.
Does anyone know of a way I can delete these? They are not taking up a lot of disk space, but it is frustrating that I can't fully clean up my storage after the upgrade. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
