    Windows 10 electronic upgrade

    I am running Windows 8.1. I reserved my copy of Windows 10 Home.

    I notice I now have in a folder called $Windows.~BT which is Size 6.63 GB Size on disk 5.10 GB (5,482.143.744 bytes)

    I am wondering if this is in fact the Windows 10 downloaded programme.

    For several days now I see in my Windows updates that Windows 10 upgrade is trying to install but failing every time. I do not receive and error message and I do not receive any notification from Microsoft.

    As far as I can tell all my windows updates have been installed and I am on automatically install setting. I am on a monthly metred internet connection allowance.

    I disabled Windows Defender and Malwarebytes pro last night but still the upgrade failed.

    The PC is only a couple of months old.

    Any advice or ideas please?
