Windows 10: Free Up More Space After Upgrading

Windows 10: Free Up More Space After Upgrading

If you've upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8 and you find that a lot of your harddrive space has been used up, don't worry too much as it's not Windows 10 itself that's packed it out.

When you upgrade, Windows keeps a backup copy of your previous OS to allow you to revert back to it if you're not happy with Windows 10 - however this is only valid for up to a month after you upgrade. Now this backup doesn't exactly come in at a small size as you... [read more]

Ok, so as many people will know I am still a happy bunny using Windows XP on my laptop - there are countless reasons for this, mainly the fact it was probably the best operating system to be released from Microsoft's lair. However with XP's support soon to be running out, I think I may have to either stick with XP forever and just find a few "underground" places for future patches (or the so-called Windows XP SP4*) or get slightly with the times and upgrade.
