    preserving settings between build updates

    It seems when updating online between builds, settings are lost, registry tweaks etc.

    Is there a workaround for this?

    Use a Microsoft Account, not a local account. Make sure Sync is active then when you reinstall or upgrade, the setting should be restore from OneDrive. Keyword here is "should".
