    Making place on the SSD drive after upgrading to Win 10


    Hello

    Is there some files/directory/ backup / etc that I could remove from Win 7 after having upgraded to Win 10?

    My SSD drive (240 GB ) is 80% filled

  2. Windows 10 / second HDD

    I have 2 hard drives - SSD and HDD.

    Win 8.1 on SSD, Win 8 on HDD.

    After upgrading to Win 10 on SSD, I cannot see the second HDD.

    I enabled the port in bios (you can see the HDD in Bios, but it was disabled) after that the Win 10 restored to Win 8.1.

    Any ideas how can I upgrade to Win 10 + have the second HDD?

    Thank you.

  3. Add second drive to advanced start up screen

    I had a dual boot setup Win 10 and Vista. I installed a SSD drive in the Vista spot and cloned Win 10 to it.

    Had to remove the Win 10 drive and put the SSD drive in it's place so i could boot from it.

    I then hooked up the old HDD with Win 10 in the Vista spot.

    How do i get both drives to show up so i can pick which drive i want to run as the Start up option screen doesn't appear.?

    Hope this makes sense.

    If you're quite sure that you will never wish to roll back to Win7, you can remove windows.old plus some installer files for 10.

    The proper way to do that is by using Disk Cleanup. (It's under Windows Administrative Tools.) Use the Cleanup System Files button.

    The large deletion will be windows.old. It's a compressed image of your Win 7 installation.

    I imaged my Win7 installation before the 10 upgrade, so getting rid of the rollback stuff is not a problem for me.
