Windows.old Folder - Delete

If you deleted per the above tutorial, anything deleted will not be a problem. The .old folder is the old operating system and can be deleted once you are sure that you have backed up all your personal documents, etc.

Regardless of the method of deletion, if just .old and its contents were deleted, you will be fine. Now go out and enjoy the great OS.
