Deleting the Windows 10 upgrade data?

    Deleting the Windows 10 upgrade data?

    So I bought a very portable laptop today. It's the Asus x205ta and it has 32gb's of ssd storage (So far i'm loving it). Anyway after booting up and getting everything to my liking, I found that the windows 10 upgrade has downloaded automatically to my system. It's just waiting for me to upgrade now. I don't want to upgrade right now as I'm very used to windows 8.1. However the windows 10 home upgrade is a whopping 2GBs (Hey, that's a big deal in my case)! Since I don't have much space on my computer (only about 8 gigabytes left after all updates and software installs), is there anyway I can delete the 2gbs and retain it until I want to download Windows 10 home again?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Nevermind, I found out about deleting it in the SoftwareDistributions Folder in Windows!
