    latest windows insider home build

    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...

    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.

    latest windows insider home build

    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..

    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:

    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.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
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?
