Re: Boot scoot

Why do MS still store user data on the same partition as the system guff given that users are expected to rebuild their OS as a matter of routine ?

Until recently, just "the way it's been done since forever, people would be confused by things changing, backwards compatibility, yadda, yadda", but now they offer you an (ever-shrinking) OneDrive to copy your stuff onto as a 'backup', simultaneously enabling MS to rifle through your data.
