After doing a full scan I found that I had a lot of SkyDrive files in C:\Windows\WinSxS..................... Do I need to keep them? or should I delete all of them? I don't know why they haven't been converted over to OneDrive, as I have OneDrive.

You shouldn't delete them (or anything else from WinSxS). Changing the name to OneDrive was just branding. Many objects still use the old SkyDrive name - even in Windows 10.

The directory C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive is still used also.

Thanks very much for letting me know that. :).
