Upgraded to Windows 10 Threshold 2? You Might Not Get Back to the Previous Version
It’s no secret that Microsoft is trying hard to bring each and every user to its newest Windows OS, and release of the latest update as it becomes the new default is another proof of that.
Redmond released the update, codenamed Threshold 2, only a few days ago. It comes with a number of great improvements, however, should you have it installed on your PC, you might not be able to downgrade for any good reason.
According to a report published by The Inquirer, in some cases, the Windows 10 Threshold 2 wipes out the rollback partition that contains your old operating system. As a result, you won’t be able to revert to your previous version of the Windows.
The source speculates that it might be linked to the limited amount of space on your PC. But whatever the reason this move is, it’s opted to break Microsoft’s promise that you could downgrade in the first 30 days after installing Windows 10.
As a workaround, you could download the latest version using a USB stick and Microsoft’s handy Media Creation Tool. This way you can still preserve all your data.
Microsoft hasn’t commented on this yet. But we have kept our eyes out and let you know as soon as the story develops.
