    Hey Peter,

    I was hoping that may have just been for the anniversary build, and not for future Insider builds and OS upgrades. I'll update the tutorial now.

    Here's the full context of it though: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...or-windows-8.1

    If it’s been fewer than 10 days since you upgraded to the Windows 10, or fewer than 30 days if you upgraded before July 29th, 2016:

    Hello Andrei, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    This will bring you back to whatever previous Windows was installed before your current Windows 10.

    If you previously had an older version of Windows 10 installed, then that would be what it goes back to.

    There should be a warning prominently posted at the top of this and any similar Tute to the effect that unless there is at least twice the space available on the drive than the size of windows.old folder, the recovery wont proceed.
    (Someone emailed me this complaining that my favourite websites had let them down).
