    here's simple -- get an SSD that's twice the size of the present one.  Windows didn't delete its old files just in case you need to 'roll back' to an earlier version ... this is a 'safety' feature.  [the Windows rescue program that you make and run from DVD/USB is how these files are accessed.]

    Look in the Start menu - Windows Administrative Tools - Disk Clean-Up and use the option to clean system files. Select Windows update clean-up to remove the old files.

    NOTE: Be sure you are happy with the update, as once you wipe the update files the only way back is a complete windows re-install
