I have Windows 7 installed for a long time and would like to make a fresh start. I have purchased a Windows 10 update for my Windows 7.
I see now two options:
- Make a factory reset of my notebook to Windows 7. Then update to Windows 10.
- Windows 10 media tool offers the option to leave "nothing" on disk (delete files, apps, settings) during the update from my current Win 7.
Both options seem equivalent, but option 2 would be less work. My question is, is option 2 really a "fresh" start or are old Windows files and potential problems I am having kept (remember my current OS has been runing for long)? If no, option 1 may be better.
