Please *bottom* quote on mailing lists. Otherwise it's almost
impossible to thread and follow the discussion.

You are of course welcome, although I am not sure what your response
has to do with what I posted! *puzzled*

What I was saying is that you can re-install Win10, a new clean copy,
so long as you have the product key.

This is a lot easier than trying to back up or restore it.

Extract the licence key with this:


Keep it somewhere safe, on paper, or in a cloud drive.

Download a copy of the Win10 DVD image here:


Keep it somewhere else, off the PC.

You need to do these steps from Windows, before you begin. You can't
do it from Linux.

Burn the ISO to a USB key or something in case the installation goes
wrong, then you can use them to repair Windows.
