    well, I am sure whatever version ends up installing, it will activate without issue..
    here again, its running fine, so until I start having issues, i'll probably just let the sleeping dog lie...

    i did an upgrade when I joined windows insiders several months ago, and I had win 7 home; I was pleasantly surprised that I was upgraded to win 10 pro, and thats why I have not been anxious to do a clean install, for fear of losing the "pro" upgrade..
    Its not that big of a deal, but my upgraded machine is running pretty nicely, and I always believe in leaving "well enough" alone..
    You could always just do a "reset", and that will usually get you the same as a clean install. That way you would be sure to keep Pro.

    thanks for the suggestion!
    since its all good right now, there is no real immediate need for it, but, i really should do a clean install at least once..

    After upgrading successfully to W10 I ran Disk Cleanup and that got rid of the $Windows~BT folder. The other hidden folder $Windows~WS is still there and I won't be touching it until I know it's safe to do so.

    Follow-up to above
    Have just seen on the Windows Insider Community forum that it's ok to delete both folders as they are just temporary folders.
    Tx, Did Disk Cleanup or you purposely not choose the ~WS folder? I think I will copy the install.esd file from and save it since I have no plans to revert back to 8.1. (Macrium has a BU of 8.1)

    Disk clean up only removes the Windows ~BT folder. I deleted the other one manually. No ill effects that I know of.

    Great TX Alpha. I just wrote that folder to a flash drive just in case, did a BU with Macrium, and now will erase it from the C:

    You have to go to Cleanup system files.

    Hey...

    I am off topic, I know, but I am leaving here two questions/threads I've posted, in case someone could help. Thank you!

    1) Will I receive major updates under these settings?
    2) Office 2013: something weird

    I'd appreciate any kind of help or feedback on these.

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
