During my experience upgrading Windows 10 devices, I found devices which has over 100Gb just on the Windows folder (Windows 7), so, after the upgrade that is a lot of wasted space on your HDD if don´t proceed to clean it. To do that, Windows 10 has a very easy tool: Check Storage, if you want to clean unused files (included temp files), you need to proceed as follows:
- Go to Settings
- Go to System
- Go to Storage
- Click on "Configure Storage Sense or run it Now"
- Check temporary Files and select as your own need the options
- On Free up space now, check "Delete previous versions of Windows"
- Finally click on "Clean Now".. you need to wait some time depending on the file sizes.
In some cases I was allowed to free up to 350Gb... it was a lot of unused files in a Windows folder from Windows 7...
Hope this help you to get more space on your HDD.

Odd that when you run cleanmgr.exe, it doesn't seem to include c:\windows\temp
