    Oh I WILL have win 7 again on that PC, I have a copy on another PC that I can use. Just a pain, MS you dont want me to go back, but I will, you can not stop me.

    only 6 days and MS screws me over with a promise that turns out to be a lie.
    First it said 30 days during the upgrade, promised if I did not like could revrt, then I find it is really only 10 days. Now after 6 days they say sorry...you can not go back, HAHAHA!

    Just out of curiosity, how big is windows.old? 20GB wouldn't be unusually large.

    Why didn't you create an image of W7 with Macrium Reflect before you installed W10 ?

    If you go from 7 to 10 via free upgrade, you do get 30 days to roll back. After that though, if you upgrade from one windows 10 main build to another, like from 1703 to 1709, you only get 7 days to go back to the previous build. I do believe going from one build to another means no going back to that original OS, no going back to Windows 7 etc.

    Where are you seeing said message, and what method are you using to try and go back to Windows 7? When did you do the free upgrade from 7, and have you upgraded Windows 10 to a new build after that?

    because I was stupid and trusted MS that I could go back just like they had said.

    So went from 30 to 10 days and now it is 7 days, what a laugh.
    I tried to use settings, go back to prior os. It said win7 cant go back.
    Then I tried recovery drive usb for win10, troubleshoot, go back.

    These MS guys obviously desperately do not want you to go back, dont trust them if they say you can go back.
