    MS Outlook Cloud Backup

    Thanks for that helpful answer Neemobeer . I think you're confusing 2 different things . A user's personal backup , which is of course his responsibility , and the server/cloud/whatever backup , which is the provider's responsibility , and I find it very hard to believe they don't have these...

    Disk Free Space

    An update on this . I actually don't defrag , for the reasons , I've explained . Still , I decided to try the Win7 defrag . Below is the map that Defraggler gives me after . It has distributed some toward the end , but most appears to be in the first 1/2 .

    Disk Free Space

    Thanks Digerati . "Getting rusty" - my intention was not so much the disk surface , as the accessing that position ( e.g. at 50% radius , 70% radius etc. ) .

    Cancelling Win 10 Download

    Tried cleanmgr and selected Windows Upgrade Log Files - same result . Might selecting Service Backup Files have any effect ? At any rate , I guess I can live with that .
