I need to reformat my drive. Back when Windows 10 upgrade was still free I upgraded to it. I also made a backup copy of the upgrade on a disc. If I reformat my drive and install Windows 7 will I still be able to install the upgrade?

OK. Thanks. I didn't know if I actually had a Win10 license. I figured that I might have to pay for it this time since I paid for 7 but not 10. When it was still free (upgrade) I made a creation disc. I will try that.
 


No. Use teh media creation tool to create an upto date USB drive or DVD. THis will spare you some headaches.
