    Best way to go about reverting/refreshing


    Hey Folks,

    Recently I found out my insider hadn't updated in a while due to a glitch, got it all up to date a while back, did a few more updates but then tried to play a few games and found out that EasyAntiCheat does not play well with the recent batch of updates.
    So yeah i know i screwed myself here by using insider preview, but i'm trying to see what would be the "cleanest" way to get back at it, simply "revert to previous" doesn't work because i don't have the oldest files anymore, already looked into some stuff like refreshing, but maybe i'm missing some little trick that makes me keep most/all stuff.

    Maybe it's worth just waiting for the next general update to save myself some hassle alltogether?

    Suggest
    a. Restore a previously created disk image (e.g. Macrium Reflect) - we constantly urge users to use disk imaging routinely. And you are taking risks using Insider builds.

    b. Do an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs, data and most settings.
    For this you would need the relevant iso - same base build and language.

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    chkdsk /scan
    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    Are you attempting to move from Windows insiders to the latest version of Windows 10 1803 without losing applications, drivers, windows customized settings, and files?

    Or are you attempting something else?

    Do you have files backed up?
    Had you made a backup image? (Which version?)
