Previous version of Windows 10

The Disk Cleanup Utility tells me I have 19.1 GB of a previous version of Windows. My question is: Should I select to delete this from my HD? I recently re updated from Version 1909 to 2004. I had previously updated to 2004 back in June, had nothing but problems, which finally led to a complete system failure in early September. That required to me to do a clean install of Version 1909 from an ISO file. Version 1909 ran great. About three weeks ago I thought I'd give Version 2004 another try, had some problems, learned that on Lenovo laptops there was an issue with BIOS and Windows Version 2004. Fortunately, last week Lenovo came forward with an BIOS update for my laptop. That has solved the issues I was having, and now Version 2004 is running fine. Now that you have the background of my experience with Version 2004, would you as a user delete the older version of Windows and regain the use of the space on the HD? Thanks for taking the time to assit me in this decision Ken Miller
