    10074 Did Not Pickup My Apps and Files from Windows 7

    Back when I installed 9926, I had the opportunity do have it pick up all my apps and files from Win 7 when I installed it from an ISO flash drive. It did so just wonderfully and as I went through 10061 via the Windows Update route and each time all those apps and files were still in place. I was one happy camper.

    I just downloaded the esd for 10074, made an iso file and ran it on 10061. I did not offer me the opportunity to keep my apps and folders. I can easily restore an 10061 Paragon image if there is a chance the 10074 iso will offer the 'keep my apps and files' choice. Can that be done? I really am in no position to reinstall every thing under 10074 and any subsequent builds including the RTM.

    Thank you.

    I did a upgrade with the ISO from within Build 10061 and was given the option to keep everything. So far everything is working OK.

    Thank you.

    I will restore 10061 and then run the ISO and see if it picks the stuff up. One thing for sure is that it didn't do it from Win 7. I hope the RTM, or what ever the final version is called, will allow me to upgrade from Win 7 as the 9926 ISO did.

    If it doesn't do it then it is a deal breaker for me until I absolutely have to make the switch for some reason.

    Thanks again.
