I do remember being asked about the hard drive and will keep that in mind. When I am doing something new I tend to get anxious to the point where I should slow down and read directions better.
In a while I will remove it if it is ok and then be more vigilant.
Roaming has its up and downs. It is true you are consuming others time and it appears redundant.
On the other hand, I usually get varying opinions and usually can tell which is valid.
The discussions are also interesting for both the person asking and the person answering. I have spoken with some mods etc. who actually encourage and like the interaction. You can tell by dates that some forums are not doing much while others are very busy.
I have noticed that noyt many are investing in 8.1.
Forums go as high as 8 although they are willing to discuss 8.1.
It is possible 8 and 8.1 will be the shortest lived os's in history and companies know it. I cannot understand it as I find 8.1 o b the best since I began in xp days. I never had a problem with it and it is fast and can do most anything quite well. Updating drivers solved any issues I had and that only makes sense.
I have it on my laptop an desktop which came with 7. When I image back to 7 I feel like I went back 20 years in technology.
I am a veritable amateur and am having success with both, with the help of forums like this, yet I read about so many issues and negative comments. I bought these pcs with hardware to update and I think some folks wanted a to install 8.1 where it will not work well and blame the OS.. If Windows had "fixed" the refresh/reset with 8.1 they would have done their job completely. I can image to 8 but the regression is obvious and it is not worth it to refresh or reset. However, it would be nice to have that ability in 8.1. M$ should have simply offered a 8.1 disc patch for $10 or patched with an update and kept everyone happy.
I would give anything if I had been raised in the Linux vernacular so I could use different flavors or distros ably. However, Linux cannot be run on intuition - you have to know what to type. I have praised Zorin and although it is like Windows, it still requires Linux knowledge to optimize the OS.
It is too late and not practical now for me to learn Linux well, so I dabblel with it. I hope Win 9 is very much like 8.1 but with the refresh/rest and a few other issues worked out.
