Well, it did the auto upgrade thing on my 8.1 Dell laptop and everything went south real fast! Apps froze, drivers wouldn't work. So I reverted back to 8.1. Then I got a message telling me that file history had been disconnected from the drive (E) to long. Please reconnect or select a new drive. I had no idea what File History was, never activated it on my computer and never had an external drive permanently connected for downloads. After a ton of research I discovered that File history is off by default. Did Windows 10 trigger this> Because now my quest had led me to a disturbing discovery in my disk management. I am not skilled in this, so when one site said the the Windows 10 had messed with their partitions, I thought I would check mine.  Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Dell is telling me I have to do a system reinstall. WHY? I really don't want to if I don't have to! Please look at the screen cap and tell me if partitions shouild look like this. As a side not, should File history be off? Ugh!
