    If you want those gone and have them recreated for Windows 10, that would require doing a clean install instead.

    Hello pinklotus,

    As long as you have hard drive activity, it would be best to let it sit until finished.

    Usually one of three things below will happen by turning off and on. This is why it's best to let it sit if there is still any hard drive activity.

    1) It'll pick up where it left off after restarting.

    2) The reset will be cancelled, and it'll revert back to previous installation.

    3) The Windows installation will be corrupted, and will require a clean install.

    No harm. At worst, you'll have to clean install.

    I hate to tag along with the rest and beat a dead horse but I'm about to perform a Reset on my Windows 10 Pro (upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate).

    Here's my machine:

    1x 120 GB SSD Hard Drive (Currently my System Drive, C:)
    3x 1TB Hard Drives (D:, E:, F:)

    I'm currently using Drive E: to act as my Documents/Photos and some apps drive, Drive D: is all apps/applications/games, and Drive F: as utility. I'm hoping to move the My Documents folder to drive F: and then perform a reset.

    A few questions:

    1) Since my Windows 10 is already activated, can I perform a clean install from a disc instead of a simple reset? (I'm seeing conflicting answers regarding this. Some say yes, some say no.)

    2) If I perform the reset, will all the files on all the drives be erased including the ones I moved to Drive F?

    3) Will Windows 10 still try to use my old Windows 7 directory names after the reset? (I noticed that I had a D:\Paul directory made and many times when I tried to save it would go there instead of D:\Users\Paul from my Windows 7 installation)

    4) Will this finally resolve the insane problem of Cortana not working? (I managed to get it to work one time, then made a new profile, and never got it again...This even following the "guide" of deleting the appropriate registry key too :/)

    I appreciate any and all advice?
