Downgrade From Windows 10 Within 30 Days

Officially, from Microsoft Corporation this is a no-go area. The company expects users to be familiar with the new OS within 30 days and hence, feels that there is no need to continue to provide the rollback option. What Windows 10 simply does is that after 30 days it deletes the Windows.old along with $Windows.~BT, and $Windows.~WS. These folders are crucial for a rollback to work.

Downgrade From Windows 10 After 30 Days

One such procedure as outlined by ( ) is to rename all the three folders to something memorable as soon as users upgrade to Windows 10. This way the new OS will not be able to delete these files. After the 30-day time lapse, users can rename these folders and head in "Settings" menu and click on "Update & Recovery." This is not a tried and tested method by us but if this works for someone, do mention it in the comments.

Third-Party Tools
The 3rd-party tools available for Windows 10 rollback. To revert to the original Windows after 30 days a couple of backup software will be able to do the trick. However, users would require an external storage device for the complete backup.
We were also contacted by the team at EaseUS, to take a look at their Windows 10 rollback option. Labeled as specifically EaseUS System GoBack (, it is aimed at users looking to downgrade from Windows 10, the free software functions in a similar way to the backup tools available already.
So long as you upgraded to 10 within the last month you can revert back to Windows 7, if you decide to wait and want to go back you’ll need to reinstall the OS to the one the machine came with. Either way make sure you backup. This site has the steps for OS recovery:
