Please be advised, you have exactly 30 days from the day you upgrade to Windows 10 to go back to your old OS before you can no longer do so. You do this by hitting the Start button or Windows key and clicking "Settings." Then click on "Update & Security" then "Recovery." You will see an option to "Go Back." If you do NOT see the option, it means you deleted the Windows.old file from your PC or 30 days has passed. If it is not there, you are stuck. No 3rd party program required.

easeUS Todo Backup & easeUS System RevertBack are 2 different programs altogether.

P.S i have easeUS todo Backup Home, but the free version is good too, just nags u to 'pay' and is slower at backups than paid versions, & is for personal use only. This is a great backup/clone software.

The best and safest method, which will work at any time even long after the 30 day period, is to make either a full image of your hard drive to an external drive before upgrading to W10, or to create a clone of your system to a spare hard drive, again before starting the upgrade to Windows 10.

Like so many folks with older early Windows 7 machines, the Windows 10 upgrade didn't work for me and rendered my laptop useless. A good job I did have an image on my external drive so I could reinstall everything from that.

Plenty of good image or clone making software available, however I used Macrium Reflect, to me one of the best if a little slow at working.
