    The issue is old except I think the dropbox discovery is about a week or two.... As for the reason for the post move, no idea either, just weird I didn't start the topic and it shows me as the thread starter and there was a reply so had to check it out. Normally when threads are moved, there is always a notification but this one seems like a post move from a thread, might have actually been better to just keep it in the original thread since now people will be reading about the same problem in two threads instead of one.

    Oh well, that's the reason I am waiting my 31 days after the last in-place upgrade on October 26, 2015 for TH2 as I want to see if the problem comes back before then. If it does, I'll just techbench ISO in-place upgrade as I already have the ISO, if not, I'll just see what the WU experience is like. I did the original Win10 upgrade from Win7 Home Premium on August 12, 2015 which was basically 14 days from the July 29, 2015 release date of RTM 10240 and when the WU shows up, it'll be 13 days from TH2 release date on November 25, 2015 and then I can thank it with thanksgiving the next day...

    Really think doing in place upgrade has an effect over the 30 day rule used when you first upgraded to windows 10 from an older OS?

    Yes, as it's in the official Microsoft Windows 10 November update FAQ in the Notes section... It's also been confirmed with people I know who work inside Microsoft in Redmond...

    Had this problem many times on various machines. Found if I just killed the power with critical error message showing, the problem was gone at next boot. This is something Microsoft needs to fix

    If itís been less than 31 days since you upgraded to Windows 10, you wonít get the November update right away.
    31 days since you upgraded on July 29 from existing OS version you won't get the update till after 31 days. I maybe misunderstood you meaning can't update to 105860 because you did an inplace upgrade less then 31 days ago, because they are talking about the original upgrade to Windows 10 from 7,8,8.1 so you can still roll back to it. In place upgrade is just a repair, even if you did a clean install would not affect this.

    In-place upgrade may be a repair but whether you clean install or upgrade or in-place upgrade, you can upgrade after the 31st day and not before. My original upgrade was done on August 12, 2015 which was 14 days after the RTM 10240 release date. So it seems like November 25, 2015 would also be 13 days from the original TH2 release date which would be 31 days from my last in-place upgrade date of October 26, 2015. I'll find out for sure when the update shows up on WU.

    I have cleaned installed more then once since i upgraded to Windows 10 on July 29th. Once after the upgrade and just recently with the TH2 build i did a clean install. I feel once you were activated from original upgrade from your old OS this is what they mean about not being able to get the November update till 31 days after, not after doing a clean install of 10240 or an inplace upgrade. If i misunderstood again,sorry.

    When was your last clean install before the TH2 build came out? You did a clean install with the TH2 build so that part doesn't matter as TH2 will not have Windows Update telling you to upgrade.
