Post Windows 10 upgrade - remove Windows.Old another other files

After a Windows Upgrade, by default, a scheduled task is created and will run after four weeks to delete the Windows.Old directory. But if you wish, you can also remove the Windows.old folder manually earlier. If you find that you no longer have any use for it, you may safely go ahead and delete it as follows:

Delete Windows.old folder using Disk Cleanup
Open Disk Cleanup Tool and select Files from all users on this computer. Click the Disk Cleanup tab, and then look for the Previous Windows installations check box. You will need to click on Clean up system files button, in order to see this window.
This takes an age gathering info but its worth it.   I also checked the Windows upgrade log files and the Temporary Windows installation files to remove as well.
install logs Windows.old directory

SharePoint 2013 - Change URL of document library - SharePoint Stack Exchange

SharePoint 2013 - Change URL of document library - SharePoint Stack Exchange: "When you create a document library, it ask you the name for the DL. Once you give it, it will create library with same name and URL. You can change the name of the library any time but cannot change the url. Here are the things i followed to create url accroding to my needs:

Just go to a library trough 'Site Content'
When inside the library choose on the ribbon 'Library' tab.
Then select 'Open with Explorer'.That will open your SharePoint's library in Windows Explorer window.
Navigate one folder up and you will see list of your libraries as folders.
Rename required library's folder name as you want the URL to look like.
Close the windows and refresh the browser or go back to home page and browse the library again.
