I recently updated 10 PCs of various ages from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro - no fee, no problems.





I do not work for a legal firm, nor for the Tasmanian Library Service   😉

This is a slightly old thread but I thought it would be useful to document what I have subsequently done.


I had a 1TB HDD hanging around so I installed that rather than get a new SSD. I then used Macrium Reflect to clone my existing small C: drive. I had a few problems with this to start with because there was no space on the C: drive allocated to System Protection so Macrium would fail with an error indicating it couldn't create a shadow copy. This problem was the subject of another thread here


I made some space available on the current C:  drive for the shadow copy and the cloning process worked  and booting from the clone seems fine at the moment. I'll give it a few days to settle down before updating Win 7  to Win 10. I have already done this on a couple of other Win 7 machines  and the only issue I can across was with UAC. On my Win 7 installations this was completely switched off via the registry setting but installing Win 10 changed the registry setting so UAC was switched on again. Once I realised this and changed the registry back everything was OK.


Again thanks for all the responses.
