    It is if that's all the space you want available for restore points.

    Just a quick question if i revert back to Win 7 now, can i go back to 10 again anytime i want? Without using any installation disk.

    You could use the "Upgrade to Windows 10" update in Windows Update, but you'll also always be able to upgrade or clean install to Windows 10 with installation media.

    I find OPTION FOUR works best for Windows 10 Home.

    You would just need to manually check for and install updates.
