    Oh brother. No it's because you always make any of your opposition (not anti-MS by the way) seem like their stupid for their views. You Dencal are particularly downgrading to people. When I voice my opposition to anything, I never make insulting comments to any one personally. But you just have at it.

    You shouldn't be trying to hit anyone's nerve. That's the point. If you are trying to hit a nerve Dencal, maybe you're being a problem on this forum; not someone who has a view different than yours.

    I have no intention of installing Windows 10 on my Windows 7 laptop but can somebody tell me how much disk space I am going to lose to this automatic download.

    I think the download is about 5 GB (so a bit bigger than a DVD data disk. It seems to only download what it needs to update, because some users have reported different sizes though (depending on whether you're upgrading 7 or 8x). I remember a fresh x86 install occupied around 10 GB.

    not sure that keeping less than 4GB is good for system ....
    for SSD probably its fine, although there are talk on another forums, that some saying keeping 30GB (or 20%) on SSD is better for performance and to minimize wearing effect, but i think it depends on the controller
    also newer SSD already should have over-provisioning (reserve area)by default

    for traditional HDD probably not recommended... for defragmenting itself (windows defrag) it need at least 15% for optimum
    so 1TB hdd need 150GB free space
    beside defrag, near full hdd also impact on overall system performance

    there are many better way... like Release I Dont Want Windows 10 v2.0 · rn10950/I-Dont-Want-Windows-10 · GitHub

    Yes you'd get a lot of it back. After installation, you're old Windows folder is placed in C:\Windows.old. After you know that the upgrade has gone smoothly and you're satisfied that you'll not need to downgrade, the "Windows.old" folder can then be removed.

    The people who like Windows 10 are basically those who got lucky with drivers - which is admittedly a lot of people, and I have a computer which works fine in Windows 10.

    But to foist Windows 10 on people when the driver support isn't there is unreasonable behaviour by Microsoft.
    My nice Dell Inspiron 17 laptop when evaluated for the upgrade says There is no driver for the Broadcom wireless adapter. You may not be able to connect to the internet. Duh I guess it would make too much sense for the evaluation software to offer to kill the upgrade nag.

    MS needs to STOP trying to force Win10 down everyone's throat! It's not a matter of loving or hating MS; it's a matter that "no means NO". Once you decline the upgrade, you should NOT have to keep on declining it again ... and again ... and again!

    I also run Linux distros and they too, have version upgrades -- but they don't nag or coerce you into upgrading. Instead, they have an option in the upgrade manager to SELECT the upgrade -- if you want it. It's there if you want to choose it, but it doesn't nag or otherwise coerce you into running it.

    The MS Win10 upgrade should work the same way -- be an easy-to-find option, but not repeatedly nag you, and certainly NOT force an upgrade on you just because you made the mistake of having automatic updates enabled!
