in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.
I do not have enough space for windows to update on my PC
I now have 3 external Seagate hard drives that are 6tb each the last two drives filled up in 3 days. Because of file history. the last drive I attached was just so I can use it to store my pics, vids and docs. It seems to have taken it upon itself to assume the responsibility of file History. Can I format the 1st or 2nd hard drive since the 3rd one now is full. Does this mean everything on the first two hard drives is now on the 3rd. Also, why is my C drive full and telling me I can free up 760 GB on my C drive from other people and local accounts. I am the only one who lives here and use a Microsoft account not local one The only settings on file history are daily and by the hour. My C drive is at capacity and anything I plug in go straight to max capacity. Anyone else have a problem with this and have a suggestion I would sure appreciate it! A. Stain
I have a BOSE NC 700 headphone, with Bluetooth. It used to work well with WIN 10. Not sure what happened after several WIN updates. Now the the headset Bluetooth pairs but when I click to Connect, it gives a msg that it is not "discoverable". I have tried so many options, per many suggestions, including "remove" and re-pair again. Turn off Bluetooth then turn on. Tried uninstalling Bluetooth, restart then try again and again same msg. Uninstall and reinstall Bluetooth Enumerator, same results. Remove/uninstall Bluetooth Device, restart the PC, again tried to reconnect, same msg that my headset is Not discoverable. I and at a loss!!!! I have tried numerous ways to make the BOSE headset discoverable, still same issue that it is NOT discoverable. The strange thing is that the same BOSE Headset pairs and connects to my iPhone XR, my iPad Pro, my Mini Apple and my other iPad, but NOT with this WIN 10. So I assume the issue is NOT with the Headset, but rather with my WIN 10. Can someone help? Keeping in mind that I have tried all the options listed above. Need help! Appreciate any help, guidance or suggestions.

Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
How to fix hard drive issues on Windows 7 x86
My 1TB hard drive four days ago had 38 GB left. This morning I went to clear some files on it and I was shocked to see this in Computer: "Local Disk C: 0 bytes free of 0.98 TB NTFS" The laptop has an HDD and there is no grinding or clicking sound, I have run CHKDSK, I have emptied recycle bin and temp, I have no idea what to do. I am aware it is out of support but if someone knows a fix tell me.
I continuously get print error 0x00000bbb when trying to print any file from my Dell laptop. This happens on both an Epson and HP printer. The printers always test positive so the error is caused by Window 10 and I suspect one or more Windows Update are to blame.
Have lost audio from the internet after Windows updates
Am now on version 20H2. After installing the previous large update - sorry, forgot the number - all audio from the internet no longer works. Have tried troubleshooting, reinstalling drivers, etc. but nothing helps. If I start something on the internet with sound, for example YouTube Music, on the Sound Settings page you can see the Master Volume slider reacting, so audio is reaching the computer. When running a music app on the computer, audio is working correctly. My system is a Dell desktop with a VS248 NVIDIA High Definition Audio board.
