    Its been a while :)

    You have a few options but I would still say that you should back up your C drive (with disk imaging software) and then you can store that image safely on the D drive and return to it if needed. If you have W7 professional then I think that includes a disk imaging utility as standard. If not then there are free alternatives such as AOMEI Backupper or Macrium.

    Maybe I'm missing something here but you need to upgrade to qualify for the free Windows 10. You can' do a clean install to a new partition until you have completed the upgrade and activation.

Hi there To FORCE a clean install if you are using the ISO (or USB created from the ISO). 1) download something like GPARTED. 2) delete existing C partition 3) now boot the ISO / USB stick.
Anyone testing w10 direct upgrade method from 7 Home premium? Here is what I mean, you have everything you wanted installed on windows 7. Then you chose to upgrade instead of doing a clean install. If so, your complaints and praises please.
