    SSD Free Space Issue

    Quite correct, unless you have backups and/or installation media, then the point is moot. I Beta tested Win10 and then upgraded from 8.1 to 10. A few inner tweaks to WX and am very impressed with how 10 performs, especially when it comes to RAM managment, its footprint is the best yet. I'm...

    Windows 10 Start menu, menu bar, full screen & other problems
