I Just installed Windows 10 free upgrade from Windows 8.1 last night and like a lot about Windows 10 better but I am getting a lot of error files when trying to open files saying things like:
"Can not complete the task because there is not enough space on your computer..." - when there is well over 80 gigs of Free Space remaining.
"Location is not available ... The file or folder is corrupted or unreadable" .... when the files seem to be in perfect order.
Worst of all for me is when I open a JPG in my photo software, everything goes fine except the photo displays as one black square ... but will key up in Paint perfectly.
So because of all the bugs, I decided I want to get out of the Windows 10 nightmare and go back to the Windows 8.1 nightmare. Only when I try to do that, more errors pop up blocking me from doing so.
I go into Settings/Update & Security/Recovery and Click the option to Go Back to 8.1 ... only this error pops up:
"The procedure entry point ?GetArchitectureString@OperatingStringUnBCL@@SAPEBK@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library. C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\SetupPlatform.dll."
I've searched the error on Google for a solution and they don't even pop up a hit so I suppose I am the only one receiving that error.
So now I am stuck in Windows 10 getting error files galore and can not even return to my previous Windows system where I wasn't ever receiving any of these errors at all.
Can someone please tell me what I need to do in order to get my Windows 8.1 back please?
One question before I do that ... if I was to do a clean install with Windows 10 instead of the Upgrade that I have already done, would the errors stop? And most of all would I be able to key up JPG photos in that Photo software that worked fine in Windows 8.1?
