Hi, i've just updated to the windows 10 creators update, i have an SSD and a HDD, Before the Update my SSD only had the OS and a few others things on it which only took up 40/50gb. After the Update my SSD now has only 1gb left of 111gb how can this be?

    the older version stays on the system for a week/month and then is deleted, in case you want to roll back. If you are good with it use the Cleanup tool and have the system remove it and the rest of the garbage.

    Windows.old is taking up your space.
    Either let it go away on its own(~30 days), or delete it via Disk Cleanup.
