  • Hi TRM,

    Welcome to Technet forum.

    In addition above suggestions. Please backup files which is in Desktop, Downloads, Document and Picture.

    We could degrade to Windows 8.1 within 30 days after we upgrade to Windows 10. If you could not find “Windows.old” folder on OS partition, Windows 10 will not be downgrade to Windows 8.1.

    Best Regard,
