The update is problematic especially for people that don’t have too much free space at the installation files take around 3GB of space. To make it worst the big files have also an impact on the user bandwidth. So Windows users that have a limited bandwidth have one more thing to worry about. Microsoft won’t force anyone to upgrade unless they want it to but the company is definitely making it easier for undecided people to take the leap forward. Analysts say that this will probably be the largest software upgrade event ever as world-wide PCs will be ready to offer their owners a free Windows 10 upgrade in waves.
Microsoft has confirmed the news: “For those who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update, we help customers prepare their devices for Windows 10 by downloading the files necessary for future installation”. Soon after their statement the internet was spammed with guides on how to prevent Windows from offering this opportunity to Windows 10. Many people are sceptic about Microsoft’s intention. And among the most vehement protesters are of course pirates that don’t own a licensed copy of their current operating system and are now scared that Windows 10 will know this.
