    @Brink could you add a statement about unplugging all but OS drives. Sometimes Windows installer can install some files on other drives which makes it harder if you wish to swap them out.

    If you need the recovery partition but have your disk in t partitions already (system/ data/ pagefile) how would you deal with this especially when I nam going to follow the guide to change the default user location to D: (data).
    Also will I need my Z: drive (pagefile) or is Windows 10 tidier with this file and wont clutter by C: drive (system)?

    Hello pfield, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you have enough free space available on C, it would be best to keep you pagefile and user folders on C.

    If needed, it would be safer to create new folders on say D, and add them to libraries to access and use instead of moving your user folders.

    Hope this helps, :)

    A doubt about UEFI. First time to install in UEFI i need to have unallocated space to installer create the 4 partitions for OS, but when i already have the OS installed in GPT UEFI and have all this partitions created, to make a new clean install i need to delete all them again? Installer will not reuse it in normal formated installation?

    Hello Chummy, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    A clean install is when you format and start from scratch.

    Were you wanting to upgrade instead? If so, from what OS.

    I installed build 10074 in one of my partitions in GPT UEFI before, this build become corrupted now and i want to install the new one 10130.
    Thinking if i will need to delete all this 4 Uefi patitions or if i just choose to format and install will work fine for new UEFI installation.

    In that case, yeah it would give a better installation to delete all and start from scratch.
