    Default Can't delete windows.old folder from my SSD!

    I was trying to delete my windows.old folder but couldn't delete it! It does not allow me to delete with default windows explorer and it restarts automatically if I want to force delete it with a software like unlocker!
    I wonder if it is still used by windows OS. Please note that, I have updated windows 10 with Windows Update Assistant Software, it's in Windows 10 pro build 1809 now!
    The windows.old folder may have created while I was trying to upgrade my windows (I think!).
    Any ideas?
    Should I leave it as it is? or is there anything I can do?

    Resolved it by watching a solution from youtube!
