Windows 10 Roll-back Period Shortens

If you've been on the fence about picking up Windows 10 - or trying to still get it through a bit of a loophole, you have a grace period that you can roll-back to your previous version of Windows if you don't like it. In the past, you had 30 days to make up your mind, but Microsoft has just shortened that to 10 days. Now that Windows will cost you money, you probably would stick with it anyway, but this move shows that Microsoft is really pushing to get you on their new platform. Apparently, their biggest reason is to free up drive space though. That's thoughtful of them.

Microsoft said that the behind-the-scenes change had been triggered by data gleaned from the voluminous telemetry it collects from Windows 10 devices. "Based on our user research, we noticed most users who choose to go back to a previous version of Windows do it within the first several days," a spokesman said in an email. "As such, we changed the setting to 10 days to free storage space used by previous copies."
