On my list of nice things to do over the holidays I have offered to upgrade a local charities pc's to Win10.
I have done most of them now.
Out of caution I have left the two most important pc's till last.

The very most important pc is a Win7 unit running Reckon accounting software.
I have had a few Win10 upgrades that (without warning) removed some programs even though the pre-upgrade status said there were no incompatible apps.

Has anyone done a Win10 upgrade on a pc with Reckon installed and was still smiling afterwards?

Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Take a drive image first, that way you have a backup if it goes to custard.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
