    Windows Backup Size compared to Windows 8.1


    I have a backup of Windows 8.1 that is around 30GB+ in size. I also have a Windows 10 backup that is around 10GB in size. Why would there be such a huge difference in size? Please keep in mind that I have all my Music, Videos, Pictures, Documents and Downloads going to my 1TB hard drive, while I have a 120GB SSD as my boot drive which is the one I have backups of. Other than being different OS, and the abundance of Windows Updates for 8.1 compared to Windows 10, and all the programs are the exact same, is there something I'm missing about the size difference? Both Backups were taken at the same point, once all programs are updated to their latest version and all Windows updates installed. This is my usual setup for Windows 8.1

    Diskpart Clean SSD
    Recover Backup
    Install all Windows Updates
    Install all Program Updates
    Delete Previous Backup
    Do New Backup
    (This is done every 3-4 months)

    So far on Windows 10, all I've done is first backup, installed all programs and Windows update.

    :)

    Unable to free up drive space

    Have done the disk cleanup. download folder and delivery optimization folder are empty. Size of Software Distribution is not comparatively large.

    The backup folders (multiple) are subfolders of SystemRecovery folder which is not under Windows. It is in root directory.

  3. Data variation in Windows Maps app from HERE map app on Windows 10.

    Original Title: Not enough data

    If Windows Maps is still using the same data from HERE maps why is it that the map size of Malta is 45mb compared to the mobile version at ~135mb (on android) when I was using Lumia 820 Windows phone 8.1?
