Hi - We have a Windows 10 Home client with very little free disk space (approx 6GB). We would like to upgrade to windows 10 Professional to take advantage of 'BitLocker' drive encryption. I'm aware of the upgrade process but would like clarification on the following before proceeding:

1) How much free disk space is required to carry out the upgrade? I'm not sure if the upgrade only involves enabling additional functionality or does it download/install the additional functionality from the Microsoft Store\DVD?

Any assistance would be appreciated
