Total amount in the $windows~BT is 5GB.

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

They are related to the windows 10 upgrade,
If you don't want to upgrade see this,
But I wouldn't delete them until you remove the other associated updates/ cancel win-10 reservation.... otherwise m$ might send the 5gb folders back to you ?
Please help me get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade
