    ... the pictures weren't listed either....somehow the 'update' erases/deletes them on my pc. Those files are only 300 or so mb...
    At the beginning of the year my Pictures folder held 4.75GB of photos. They all came through the Anniversary Update intact.

    Don't know why my update did what it did, probably never will know. But it did. I'm happy glad others didn't suffer the same fate but that didn't change the fact. I also recreated the loss by restoring to a prior date and running the update again. But as stated when restored put all the photos [some heirlooms and some irreplaceable] on external drives along with several USB's, just to be on the safe side. Didn't have that many but what I had I wanted.
    Have seen others have issues that I didn't have, but never felt a need to tell them...'gee that didn't happen to me' or 'I didn't have that problem' nice to know but not really helping...if you get my drift.
