Windows 10: Win 10 1803 weirdoes

    Win 10 1803 weirdoes


    The BSODs and weirdoes that I am experiencing since the 1803 update are getting increasingly annoying and upsetting!

    Latest in the row: I switch on my machine and I get a popup stating that my "C:\Recycling bin got corrupted". Plus asking whether I want to empty it or not. What a BS is this?

    And worse: neither the Yes nor the No button of that dialog showed any reaction but the alert blocked the entire system and made it non-responsive. No Ctrl-Alt-Del nor anything else allowed me to regain control.
    In the end I had to hard-reset the system! :-(

    And I am constantly experience such issues now. It's unbelievable what this 1803 update did to my formerly almost perfectly running MS Surface Pro 4!

    Hi mmo

    I would suggest that you do an inplace repair. Sounds like you are having multiple issues. I recommend taking a backup of your data even though the process is supposed to be non-destructive.

    Recognize the damage is done but I would recommend investigating a product like Macrium Reflect. Free, reliable and member recommended. When you get in a situation like this you restore your working version.

    Did you run sfc/scannow ?

    Is there a forum dedicated to the Surface Pro that possibly other users experienced similar issues ? Possibly Pro related ?

    You may also want to consider going back to 1709 until more issues are resolved. If it has been 10 days or less your can easily revert from the recovery menu under settings.

    I ran an sfc /scannow - found no issues. Directly after a hard-reset due to yet another "Recycle bin corrupted" blocker I ran:

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>chkdsk c:
    The type of the file system is NTFS.

    So, why is this system constantly bugging me with "Corrupted recycle bin" messages - even after I emptied it multiple times?

    Unfortunately the upgrade to 1803 was more than 10 days ago. So I can't revert. And I wouldn't dare to do that anyway since I did that once on another system and ended in a completely garbled system that I could only resurrect by re-installing Windows.

    If only Windows had some decent feature to capture all the installed apps and their configs as well as all changes that need to be done to Windows itself to be able to work decently, then a re-install would not be such a big hassle. Being a developer I have so many tools and extensions installed that it typically takes me 2-3 *entire days* until my working system is back to where it were before a re-install. :-(

    Consider the Inplace repair.

    Given what you said about rebuilding you really have to look at Macrium. 2-3 days is unacceptable.

    You can even create an Image right after a clean install with all your tools installed so you have something to fall back on.

    Windows doesn't, but there are 3rd party tools that can do this by Laplink and Easeus. I've used Laplink's PcMover 3 times I think over the years; 95% or so successful in transferring 100s of programs and settings from one PC or build to another.
    I would manually reinstall large programs; don't use it for security programs; many licenses are transferred but some progs need to be re-licensed. A few need to be re-installed.

    Both companies offer a cheaper license for a version that uses a disk image of the old system as a source, which I found a lot more convenient. A huge time saver, but a one-off fee.

    With that sort of tool and a decent disk imaging strategy, updating your disk image set before any major change and after it, life is considerably easier.
