The folder you are referring to was generated by the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant during the Anniversary Update. If you are satisfied your system is operating fine you can safely remove this folder.

To remove the windows10upgrade folder do the following:
  • In your Search box type Programs and Features then press the Enter key
  • Scroll down and right-click on Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant and select Uninstall

    When this has been uninstalled successfully the windows10upgrade folder located at C:\windows10upgrade will also be removed automatically.

One does have to wonder why one was informed by Microsoft Support to not manually remove Windows.old nor Windows10Upgrade. 

I removed the Windows.old after Anniversary Update was installed on my system. I also uninstalled the Windows10Upgrade and then enjoyed having my computer not rebooting.

I was told the contents of Windows.old would be removed and it was, leaving just any empty Folder which I was told would remain and for me not to touch. Yesterday I noticed that has been removed also. I still am afraid to remove the Windows10Upgrade for fear of the computer bursting into flames. Logically of course, uninstalling this should not hurt the system but being told my MS not to do that, I haven't. 

Now I see you are also answering a rather recent question and instructing them to remove it. Very interesting!

I have since removed Windows 10 Upgrade and it provided me with no problems whatsoever this time. Last time it gave me much grief in that my computer would not reboot. This time everything went well. Now I'm saying there is nothing like Microsoft and their updating system. It's all good though Apple does not think so.

Oh my, look at this brilliant & helpful reply. May I make a near sensible observation, EL_XO??? Hmmmmmmm? You must be a real joy to live with, like, computer keyboards smashed, computers around your residence with the screens kicked out of them, dishwashers upended in the floor, plates of spaghetti stuck on the ceiling, your wife (or someone else's) lying pads up on the floor! Pardon me, but my sides are splitting!  :-D
