Default Re: The Windows 10 Thread!

I recently upgraded to Win10 from Win7 on my Dell Laptop. All went well for the first week. Then as I was trying to copy some files from USB, it crashed and didn't start up again. I waited for a good 30 minutes before I tried booting it up. This time it did, but the copying caused a crash again. It hasn't started up since.

I am regretting the decision on upgrading. Lots of precious data and I definitely don't want to lose them.

Which data you are talking about? USB media or the harddisk where windows is installed? Did you try to run recovery using windows boot media? If not hen run it but be careful while choosing options if you don't wan't to lose the data.

Default Re: The Windows 10 Thread!

Windows 10 gave a new lease of life to 2 of my devices. One was an HP amd AIO, and a lenovo flexpad10, both on 8.1.
They were ridiculous on 8.1. Nightmarishly(vista level) slow, unresponsive. A few times, I I used to click on an office function, and by the time it opened, I had forgotten what I wanted to do!
I had tried everything to go to 7, but the bios are the most unfriendly ones in the world EVER.
The flexpad 10, had a 64 bit bios and 32 bit OS. and no support from HP or Lenovo.

With 10 however, i am at about 75% of what i expected from 7, which is about 75 times better than what it was with 8.1.

Thanks. The Harddisk. I didn't have the time yet to run a recovery. Will definitely do it this weekend.

@aneezan; Try out AOMEI One Key Recovery. It is platform independent.

After a restore (AOMEI) I found the system waiting forever for KB3093266 which seems to be a cumulative update. I downloaded to stand alone but not much help. This is over 500MB for 64-bits. Any experience.

Its installed automatically on my system on 01-10-2015. This auto update is just killing me by eating up my precious high speed data limit.

I was having some registry problems. So have downloaded and installed the Wise registry Cleaner. It is a 5* rating on many reviews. Works like a dream and makes bootup really fast.

Well, I did disable the hibernate thing but cant run this command. It says that there is some error. Windows 7 was the best OS I have come across. Now I'm scared to re-install Windows 10.

Run cmd as admin. Important to do that.
The command is very useful on SSDs and should be default but windows does not believe in doing it automatically. One would have expected this thing to be auto in 10, but guess will have to wait a while.

What is the issue with using the hibernate feature?
I have used it in past.

Nowadays I am even more lazy and hence prefer the standby function!
I reboot the PC when I feel that the PC is becoming little lazy-laggy.

I am thinking of downloading Win 10 with the November releases. I thunk there were links for downloading the ISO images directly. I cannot find them now. I need both Home-64 (backup with the latest) and Pro-64 (for my Win 7 laptop). Can someone please post a link to the post or the links.

The direct download link stopped working since the November update was released. I guess the only option available right now is to download the ISO via the media creation tool which can be downloaded here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/soft...10?Search=true
The direct download link will reportedly be operational again after some time.

Sorry for the back to back post, but just came across a possible reason for the current non availability of the official ISO, read here :
