Contrary to my compulsive nature, I am glad I did not pull the trigger and will stick with seven.
I can't complain as it does everything I need but I sure would have likes to have played with 8.
I think I shouldd not install new over old but, when necessary, buy new and take what comes with it.
Thank you again and c u soon, as the kids say.
If you are working with a one drive only system or have a second drive designated for storage and backup purposes the best move would be maintaining a full system image backup either with the built in option found in the CP>Backup & Restore section or using a 3rd party program like the free version of Acronis Disk Director suit Western Digital provides. Seagate's Disk Wizard is the same but rebranded.
With the present build here I planned it to have two not just one OS drive with the second mainly for testing and trying out other OSs as well as what comes next in the Windows world!
Two other drives plus one in an external enclosure serve as storage drives. The second OS drive is presently split up for OS and the remainder for system images.
Here 7 is actually doing more here then could be done with the retail 8. I still have to decide on whether or not 8 or the next to come will have a place on the second OS drive however while 8 was a disappointment after going with 7!
At the same time some others seem to like 8 over 7 while some prefer Vista over 7 as is usually the case. I just heard from someone who was seeing shutdown problems where the power button had to be used after just buying the retail 8 Pro. To me the new version still sounds a bit buggy for the time being.
