    Can't find a way to fix those 2 issues though.
    Yah, Looks like corruption either way..backup what you want and start clean - that way we eliminate all sorts of unknowns.

    My sisten is a boot SSD with some programs on it and two HDD's. As I've never done it or have much experience with reinstalling Windows, if I were to just clean install 7 on my SSD and keep everything on my hard drives, would programs on my hard drives work when I upgrade 7 to 10? I'm going to guess not but I think all my files should still be accessible right?

    Applications will need to be reinstalled - but you need to backup stuff like export outlook files etc...

    Final inquiry about this. When I reinstall Windows 7, should I need to install all the hundreds of Windows updates or can I just get started with the Windows Media Creation tool?

    No, my tests were with Win 7 and SP1 only.

    Come on Windows, I just want to format my HDD. Stop telling me the drive is in use when it has almost no programs on it and nothing on the drive is open -_-

    A couple other important questions. I know Windows 7 installation can have issues when multiple drives are plugged in. When I installed it on my SSD, it apparently put some boot info on my HDD and required that info to boot properly.

    So, when I plan on re-installing Windows 7 now, I will have just my SSD plugged in. However, one of my two HDD's will be formatted and the other will have files on it that I want to keep. Should I upgrade from 7 to 10 with that HDD with saved files on it plugged in, or should I hook it up after Windows 10 installs?

    I had issues with doing mine through Windows Updates but I persisted and it's came through. I suggest the best way is via Windows Updates.

    Just make sure your 7 is fully patched.
    Do a System cleanup, and run wuauclt.exe /updatenow.

    You might want to restart Windows Updates Service in Services as well.
