    Any compatible 1809 iso or bootable disk can be used: Make sure you log in normally first, then run setup.exe from the mounted iso or bootable installation disk.

    Having a current disk image is strongly recommended before any major change.

    SO since I had downloaded the original WIndows 1809 back October do I do the one on October 2018 or the October 2018 Update-March2019?
    dalchina answered the question. And as a reminder... always backup before major OS maintenance (which this is)!!!

    Thing is that I just checked and the BT file is still around but it only has the NEW OS File left. If I do inplace upgrade will it delete the file? Hopefully.

    I don't know. And any further questions can be addressed to the author of the tutorial. That said, if you really want to insure the folder is gone you could do a clean install, but that would mean reinstalling all your programs and stuff.

    Good luck.

    Please read the links I posted about what it is, why it's there and what should be in it.

    Basically there should be no need to hack the O/S.

    It should normally be hidden - and as it's hidden, it's hidden so people don't get stressed about it.

    Only if something isn't working and it gets too large when it shouldn't be (note from the descriptions I gave you that it can legitmately be large at certain times) would there be a need to intervene.

    Well I did the repair as suggested at 3pm my time. It installed and everything but now I'm at the working on Updates screen and for the past 20mins it has been at 86 percent. Should I worry. It is on an SSD.

    Glad you got it fixed. I find the simplest way to resolve these issues is to boot into Ubuntu and delete from there. I remember a friend who had all his pictures on one laptop, no backup. The laptop got infected and wouldn't boot. He brought it to several stores and the answer was the same, you're SOL, you will need to reformat. The guy was going nuts, all his kids pictures since birth. I booted the drive in linux, copied all his pictures to external drives and restored the laptop.

    You have to patient with Windows. At work I've seen the system chug for what seems hours and then the screen messages "Unable to update, removing files" or something to that effect
