  1. 8.1 OEM to 8.1 Pro

    So an 8.1 OEM to 8.1 Pro would be eligible for 10 Pro, is that correct? It would probably be cheaper to get a 8.1 Pro upgrade after 10 is launched then to buy a 10 upgrade. Do I have this about right?

    A question about the size of the C drive. I did a restore a few months ago, does that create a full backup copy somewhere, if so, where. I don't find anything that looks like that or of any size.
