Windows 10 will be available for download on or shortly after July 29, 2015. SEMCO Members and guests will have an opportunity to see Windows 10 in action and to discuss the pre-upgrade backup process, when, and how to upgrade. We will also discuss when it is best to just backup files and start over, particularly if you would like to jump from a hard drive to a solid state disk (SSD) at the time of the upgrade.
