Tried to rollback to Win 7. Tells me not enough disc space and I need to free some up.
Not sure what to do now or what to free up

Presuming that all your user data files are on the C: drive along with the OS, the easiest thing would be to copy those off to a backup drive and delete them on the C: drive to open up some space.  You can copy them back over once you've completed the rollback.


Did you, by chance, take a full system image before doing your upgrade?  If so, you could also elect to restore from that instead of rolling back.
