    Dell Inspiron 570 and Windows 10 Upgrade

    Has anyone any experience of upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron 570? I've visited the Dell site and it is not on the list of Dell computers that have been tested; in fact it specifically says that it will not be tested. The only advice given is a recommendation not to upgrade to Win 10, which may well be true but is not exactly much help in making a decision on whether to proceed or not!

    What are the main hardware specs of the system? That's going to be your biggest determining factor. Windows 10 can run on some low end hardware just fine. As long as you can get your drivers, either through Dell, the part manufacturer, or Windows Update, you should be fine....once we see the proc and memory.

    Win 7/10

    If you want to give it a shot (and I would) if the "Get Windows 10" app says its compatible, I would FIRST make a complete hard drive (all partitions) backup to a separate hard drive, with a program such as the free version of Macrium Reflect. Then if the upgrade doesn't work out, you can restore the hard drive to where you are now. There are documented cases of an upgrade failing and the user isn't able to "go back" with the Win 10 function or that some user data is lost in the upgrade. You will be able to restore any lost user data with the backup. I've had one client that I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 and the user data was lost, I have one client that upgraded themselves and lost data, other clients did not have any problems.
