The truth about Windows 10's hidden drive partition

This is a video only but a must see if you can. Using Windows Admin tools does not show what is actually in those pesky hidden partitions. This video makes it clear and may help you avoid wiping critical files from your system.

Good link. Thanks!

I understand that Windows 10 can also "uninstall itself" and roll back to Win 7 or 8 if it was a free upgrade to Windows 10

It's done through: Settings> Update & Security> Recovery

I've only read about it, haven't tried it yet and, sorry, don't have the link.

Rich, I got a 79 buck today 256GB good SSD drive and then clone the Windows 7 hard drive to it. I can walk anyone through it if they are willing to spend 20 bucks or so for the drive wire. Then I removed the Hard Drive and installed the cloned SSD. THen justr put the old drive in the SSD box and label it well. THat leaves you your Windows 7 install minus your new work to swap out any time to revert. THen attach the SSD to the computer with the old drive and system in it and drag and drop new files between them. Then when you have the files synce'd you will have a hard drive with all the info running 7, and the stored drive is the SSD or you can now cope files to the old Win 7 HD and then go back to the SSD with 10 anytime.
