In some cases limited functionality might occur, such as twain, direct integration and other such which was originally designed to operate in the previous platform. In those cases we are unable to provide functionality.

Replacing hard disk in existing PC, Solid State drives offer a great way to increase the performance of the PC..
Solid State Drives serve as a great upgrade option and increasing physical memory. Install new OS on new Hard Drive retaining old drive as backup which will later be stored for safe keeping by the end users.
Upgrading from Windows 7 directly to Windows 10 is the most effecient method once all software driver and hardware is confirmed compatible, however it is advised to create a cloan drive or system backup as a fall back in case the upgrade fails.
