Good morning All,
Thank you for your patience & help, this is just a brief update on the problems of yesterday. My laptop did not download the ISO file at all, it seemed to be hung up during the set up. It took me another hour to clear the laptop and shutdown!
I cleared the laptop this morning and started again with the Media Creation Tool and this time it worked OK. It took about 90 mins and now I have the ISO on a USB.
I am now ready to reinstall Windows 10 into my PC. There still a couple of questions outstanding:
1. Will this action of reinstalling W10 completely clear everything from my C: & D: drives?
2. If everything is cleared can I re-partition my hard drive so that I have more room in C: and less in D: ? Or even not have a partition at all?
I have just noted the time of my posts and realise that my laptop was showing the wrong time. It is now 12:05 Tuesday 14th June.
