How to change free the Windows7 / 8.1 of the 32bit version to the 64bit version

How to change free the Windows7 / 8.1 of the 32bit version to the 64bit version when you upgrade to Windows10

free upgrade to Windows10 to the last year of July 29 has been started already nearly a year has passed since, we have more and more people are using Windows10 also around.

However, the upgrade to the Windows10 but are using a Windows7 / 8.1 still a little wait and see, I think in quite many people called.

However, also becomes about one week after free upgrade period, also since it has been recommend actively your upgrade of Microsoft also to Windows10, it seems to be an increasing number who are thought to wonder if that should be soon upgrade.

but it is great pains where you want to use in deals to free period if you want to upgrade.

In this study, using a PC at hand that Windows7 32bit version is installed, I think that it would like to introduce the procedure results that tried the Windows10 free upgrade work on the 64bit version .

can be changed to the 64bit version from the 32bit version of the upgrade to Windows10

I’d have a Windows PC of the current three, collect the relevant information and the like on the net because of concerns such as the compatibility of software that failure or use of upgrading to Windows10, until this I had only kept to.

recently, listening to the information of the “apparently can be changed to the 64bit version from the 32bit version for free when you upgrade to Windows10” from an acquaintance, that it if it, Windows7 32bit version was purchased a few years ago has been installed and the personal computer in the lab bench, tried to challenge the upgrade to Windows7 32bit version → Windows10 64bit version.

this time to upgrade your computer which was bought ago few years, is a personal computer that Windows7 Professional 32bit version is installed. System requirements of the CPU, a memory, and the like required for upgrading to Windows10 has cleared.

memory we are up to 4GB from 1GB to, but because that is about 3GB of available even if 4GB partial implementation in the case of 32bit version As you know, the 64bit version that can work around this limitation, if possible I thought that I want to.

it is just good as the bench of this Windows10 upgrade.

benefits of change from the 32bit version to the 64bit version

from the 32bit version to one of the benefits of change to the 64bit version the physical memory of the personal computer can be added more than 4GB and there is a point that .

until the 32bit version of a few years ago was the mainstream, but trouble comes out software is a 64bit version was recommended prefer the 32bit version from reasons such as a certain part, it is now the mainstream is more of a 64bit version has been, most of the software and hardware has become basically a 64bit version correspondence.

in the physical memory is the maximum that can be recognized by the 32bit version for 3.2GB of back and forth, for such it is possible to 64bit version if more than 4GB of recognition, if the expansion of the physical memory to change the 64bit version memory consumption also you will be able to comfortably use at the time of the abundant work.

For example, if you or multiple tabs open or look at the net video, such as YouTube in the browser such as Internet Explorer (IE) and Google Chrome, to consume the physical memory of the blink of an eye 1 ~ 2GB, but 32bit version heavy operation gone free memory capacity when you realized that, you may be referred to.

it has quite the working memory consumption such as video editing is greater in the other, because there is a case where memory consumption is increased by what is running on automatic, such as Windows Update, is a case where these by be affected to other work Yes you.

Since it is

, but will take the time and effort that must have a clean installation, the person in using the 32bit version of the current OS, also to the changes to the 64bit version to take the opportunity of the free upgrade to this Windows10 perform the would say that recommended.

Always back up before upgrading

The change from the 32bit version to carry out this time to the 64bit version, it will be necessary to clean install work, as will be described later, another personal data, such as confirmation and photos settings before you perform the upgrade work on Windows10 let’s advance preparation, such as backup to the HDD.

if only to upgrade from Windows7 to Windows10 not change the bit number, but with the current settings and storage data is taken over as it is to the new OS, in the worst case OS becomes unbootable in the upgrade of OS unforeseen since there is also the possibility that the situation occurs, it is safe Once you have a backup of the data provided at the time of the event.

backup of is required I think it is basically made in the following.

, photos and text, personal data

such as music and videos- Separately installed program name and its settings

And set point and the contents of the Windows-related was changed from such as the Control Panel

In addition to this also, let’s back up, if necessary, if there is such as a set of hard Equipment mounted on your own.

easy way to backup

‘s the if to confirm the above settings to save the data, such as to an external HDD backup is complete, but it takes a little time and effort to do it individually.

For this reason, it was backed up to the HDD each another HDD using the HDD copy tool below this time. You can be collectively store all data and settings if this method, you can return to the original by reversing the HDD you are at the time of the event.

In addition, even if you want to return to Windows7 from Windows10, you can revert to secure than the function to return the OS that comes with Windows10 (within one month after the free update enabled).

USB-CVIDE4 (Sanwa)

use is simple, just press the copy button on the main unit by connecting each of the HDD to be used as for the HDD and backup that contains the OS that was taken out from the personal computer.

because from a household electrical outlet it can be used by only taking power, setting of a PC is not required. However, it is necessary to connect a copy tool removed the HDD, and some computer knowledge is required.

is recommended because the backup work if you use this method can also be easy of course work to return to Windows7.
