Answer
Hi Jim,

Sorry for taking long time to answer your question.

When you install Windows 10 as an upgrade on a PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8, the old version of the OS remains stored in a "Windows.old" folder. This folder allows you to restore that previous version directly from Windows 10, without any additional hassle.

If you still have questions, please let me know.

Regards,
