    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    As for the opening of .doc/.docx files, they can contain infected macros, dangerous.

    Problems can occur when installing/reinstalling Windows and having more drives than needed actually connected to get Windows up and running, they can always be dealt with later.

    You may need to try recovering data from it if you don't have a backup.

    There were a few reports of inaccessible/vanishing disks at one point after installing Win 10.

    I had one internal drive become RAW during an upgrade. It was a while back, don't remember what build it was. I lost what was on it. I had backups anyway. I just had to partition and format it to get full use of it again.
