    The latest rumor is after the 29th, if you haven't done the free upgrade, you will automatically be rolled back to Windows 3.1 and given a complementary, totally free for the life of the device, edition of Microsoft BOB.

    'Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current via Windows Update for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost.'

    Who defines what is the supported lifetime of a device?

    Gods of IT, when it dies it's the end of it. Positive smoke test can also occur.

    When your components will no longer take any more upgrades (lack of drivers, or incompatibilities, etc.).

    To be fair, windows 10 works without any problems on my 2gb ram hp stream 11 netbook (it originally came with 8.1 and it took some gymnastics to get it on) . On that netbook it's okay. It's just my laptop and a friends laptop that has the issues, same model. Still frustrating though because I spent many hours trying to fix it and some things (like a shutdown problem) did improve by rolling back drivers etc but some things I could never get better. My friend doesn't care about the problems and is fine with it. Anyway, going back to windows 8.1, and configured how I like it, I find I really like it better than win 10, the problems with 10 on my laptop aside. I love the way I have it now - very fast and smooth, in control and just perfect. So....

    I was looking at creating an image to back up my laptop. I've never done that before. I've only occasionally created recovery disks. So quick question: I've noticed that creating an image looks like it will require far more space than a recovery disk. It looks like I may need 50gb+. What do you use to create the image on? A large capacity usb flash drive? Something else (besides say/or dvds)?

    With this image, can you then install your "image" to any modern laptop/pc (writing over whatever is there)? Or would it need to be the same model or similar model to interact with the same hardware (I guess it would duh). I was reading something about requiring a windows installation media. Can that be part of the image that you save so it is all on the one usb etc and doesn't require multiple different usbs/media? Thanks.

    Recovery disk doesn't contain all of your programs and files installed after first install and that's why it's smaller. If you make full disk backup, you can use Macrium Reflect free that makes somewhat smaller image than actual disk space plus other partitions required to boot and use. My last full disk backup of OS drive is 47GB from 110GB on disk and not counting other partitions. I use second 2TB HDD to store one copy of backup and than I copy it to external backup USB HDD which also contains other backups of important files.
