  1. hi, trying to do inplace upgrade from Windows 10. Adopt your method, but getting error Suspend-BitLocker is not recognized. Does it work with windows 7 upgrade to win 10?

  2. Not needed. Win10 setup does suspend BL automatically.

  3. I downloaded and install windows 10 creator update, But I did not like it. After installation Microsoft shows downgrade option early after upgrading to Windows 10 and remove it after one month. I recently upgrade my windows 8.1 Professional operating system to windows 10 Professional being getting a license from ODosta Store
    But I did not like its overall structure. I think Its not Windows 10, Its version should be windows 6 as it has many faults.
    I tried to downgrade back to my existing win 8.1 os and I saw as Microsoft was giving me option to downgrade. I thought that I'll downgrade after two month But after two month when I tried again, Microsoft removed that option. Now what to do. I searched and found your post, Which is very helpful for me. Thanks for sharing these details here.

  4. There are many software out there but Activity management software & project resource management tools are in high demand since it helps a lot in tracking the regular activities of the employees. Visit here
