When you perform an in-place upgrade of Windows, setup saves old Windows files in a folder called Windows.old.

In Windows 8, if it fell below 10% free disk space, or after 28 days, the old Windows files would be removed by a system task. However, the system task could be delayed or deleted to keep the files longer. There will probably be a similar scenario with Windows 10.
