A minor issue...

Windows 'Backup and Restore' treats the installed Windows Update list as temporary and something that should not be included in a disk image. This means that any restore process returns a 'no updates have been installed' message and the list is blank. Of course all the previous updates are still present and correct and things pick up correctly from this point on.

Question. Is there a simple .text file etc that stores this data ? I'm thinking that if there is, then a copy could be made prior to running a restore and that this file could then be transplanted back thus restoring the full update history.

As you can see in the image. I have only this months updates installed despite running W10 since last year. Why ? Because I restored a disk image last week. The list has been reset.
