    Tried 10 Returned to 8.1

    Is Custom Refresh Image Functionality Gone In W-10?


    Just as the title says.

    My windows 10 systems says

    "Recimg" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    What's the story?

    Yes. It was removed in one of the beta (technical preview) versions, but nobody knows why. What I'm wondering is what will happen if you transfer the recimg.exe file from a Windows 8 machine into the same folder on a Windows 10 machine.

    For some reason that does not surprise me and I just recently found out that ExpressCache SSD's do not work with W-10 either. I used my laptop as the guinea pig for W-10 and have been on W-10 since 7/29 but I have decided that my desktop(8.1), my primary system, will not move to W-10 until the cache drive situation is resolved. In this case a move to W-10 would be a downgrade not an upgrade. I will be reverting back to 8.1 on my laptop as well until some of the loose ends are tied off. That's a shame really because I was looking forward to W-10 before it's release but I think it should be a lot better in a couple of months.

    They're supposedly releasing a huge bugfix update sometime soon. I would recommend waiting for it to come out before deciding to revert.
