Do not do this manually. Run Disk Cleanup (Windows Admin tools) and when it comes up, click on Clean Up System Files. It will run for a bit and come up again.

Look in the selection list and check most things for deletion, particularly OLD windows copies. Click OK and the Windows.old folder will disappear.

I have done this and it works for me.
