thoughts on development pcs upgrade or reset windows

Getting ready for the next game and wondering if anyone has thoughts as to whether it would be a good idea to reset windows for a clean install or upgrade everything for the new season. Just seems that there are so many steps and dependencies when setting up a development PC that it might be better starting from scratch.

I’m in the clean install camp.

I am currently in the middle of resetting all the team’s laptops right now.

Upgrade to Windows 10
Reset Windows 10
Install Solidworks
Install Eclipse
Make restore point


You have no idea what has happened to the laptops over the year, so a reset is the only way to have a good starting point for next year.

Make sure all your data is stored somewhere not on the development machines.
