I have two goals:
- a resulting Win 7 Professional installation with maximum stability and reliability; and
- no 'left-over' folders and files.
A custom install achieves both goals, but it means I have to reinstall, update and setup all my software all over again.
An upgrade installation leaves left-overs behind. (And the conventional wisdom is that a clean install offers the possibility of improved stability and reliability vs. an upgrade.)
How about Windows Anytime Upgrade -- does it achieve both my goals?
Thanks for your advice.
