    Do I ever learn! that when they say this is an 'improved' model it never is!

    I downloaded windows 10 and it wiped out my emails and the email account... oh joy.

    I have since removed the 10. Arrgh! and wasted several hours of this evening undoing the lateral damage.

    Time for a large Port and bed me thinks.

    As much as I dislike Windows, it's generally pretty good at being safe and *not* wiping things unless you have things in silly places and a weird / possibly corrupted PC in the first place.

    If your emails were only on the local PC and you didn't back them up then it's a huge risk installing a whole new Operating System.

    Seriously, switch to the cloud. Use Gmail. There is little value in having a local email client anymore.

    I upgraded to windows 10 on my laptop with no problem. On my computer gaming system it locked up. Apparently windows 10 wasn't compatible with my graphic card, which was a newer card. My main work computer I like windows 7.1 as windows media center isn't part of windows 10.

    My only issue with windows 10 is the graphics driver crashing in games etc.

    But this seems to have fixed it:

    I had to change TdrDelay to 10 in the end though.

    My desktop installed a bunch of Windows 10 updates over the weekend and as far as I can tell it killed my computer.

    It keeps booting up in safe mode. I spent a few hours over the weekend trying to fix the problem, but I gave up. I can't get it to boot up properly.

    I switched to Win10 over Christmas and haven't had any issues. In fact, I rather like the new GUI; seems they kept the best elements of Win7 and 8.1. Microsoft's browser, Edge, still blows though

    Since i use Gmail, Outlook and Office365 web mail, local email client issues are no thing. As mentioned, a local email client is almost unnecessary nowadays and more a risk for viruses than anything it would seem

    I installed full version onto a new SSD so upgrade issues weren't a problem; I've got everything backed up to externals anyways. I usually take the thing apart for cleaning and reformat system drive once a year anyways. Just cos ima nerd, yo

    I downloaded Win10 when it came out as a free upgrade and so far it's been ok.

    2 issues I have are my aspect ratio gets enlarged upon waking from sleep.

    The only other problem is many times the computer doesn't wake up properly and I have to force restart.

    Mother than that it runs ok. Games run smoother and Bluetooth works properly.
