    Perhaps the passage of time made a difference, and Microsoft made some changes to their upgrade software.
    Nah, Ed. It just works (usually).

    The upgrading works (and if you need to in future the repair install works also - no need to relocate folders back).

    Welcome.

    Which build did you install? If you recently downloaded the ISO, this should be version 1511, Build 10586.0 (becomes 10586.71 after installing all the updates). Maybe Microsoft fixed some stuff and made your upgrade to 10 successful. Great news!

    Any time I've done an upgrade, I haven't had to relocate my user folders. I don't move my profile, only the Documents, Pictures etc folders.

    It's 1511 10586.71. I don't know what it was the first time I tired. But, whatever Microsoft changed between then and now, it worked this time.

    I didn't have to move anything with this upgrade. My OS is on c: and my user profiles, documents, pictures, videos, etc are on d:

    I read that you try to adapt to the new interface. There are ways to make the interface look similar to Windows 7. Have a look at my posts at the Customization section. You can even change all the ugly flat icons to the nicer Windows 7 or 8 icons.
