    Is Windows 10 upgrade 1511 safe?

    Subject: Windows 10 upgrade 1511

    It has been suggested that this large upgrade loses installed programs.

    Is this the case? Microsoft are a bit vague on this.

    cheers

    If you are concerned make an image backup before you begin the upgrade process.

    1511 is safe, but one should be aware that if you tweaked the privacy settings you may need to check on some of them.
