    Duel boot Windows 10/11


    I'm content with Windows 10 but Microsoft have been urging me to upgrade. Normally, I probably would but I have Adobe CS6 which I believe would be rendered useless with Windows 11. While I no longer use the Adobe programs all that much, I do use them, including Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.

    Is it possible to duel boot, keeping Windows 10 and upgrading to Windows 11 at the same time on my laptop?

    Also, it's been several years, but I moved all my data to a separate D drive with the system on C drive.

    Have you moved all your data to the HDD but left \Users on C: or you also moved \Users to the HDD?

    Although you can dual boot Win 10 and win 11 on same drive, my suggestion is to buy another SSD and do a Win 11 clean install on it.

    Please post a whole window Disk Manager image of ALL your drives. Don't forget to expand the columns so we can read them. How to Post a Screenshot of Disk Management
    If you have a MiniTool or AOMEI Partition use it instead or Windows disk manager.

    I left Users on C: drive which is a SSD that came with the laptop, I was able to add a formatted HDD for D: drive from my last laptop which I use for data. It appears I don't have the space on the SDD, nor am I able to add another to hold Windows 11. I suppose I could get a larger SSD.

    I also added an image of the contents of C: drive

    You have a lot of space on D: and you're short on C:
    Move all your data to D: so you can link it from Win 10 and Win 11.
    You need at least 60G free for Win 11
