    Rats, I was hoping to add something even if it was only a small part to the discussion other then just always being a "Questioner."

    It did help to add the note about the error message though.

    @phaedruspress, without your post I wouldn't have investigated this and wouldn't have spotted the 'Element not found' message you get when there's no old version to go back to. As Brink says, you helped add that note to the tutorial.

    And to my blog post on June 4 entitled "Set Win10 RS5 Rollback Retention Interval" which now includes this material, thanks to your input/observations:
    What If These Commands Donít Work? [Added 6/25/18]

    If you donít have a Windows.old folder on your PC you can't use the Get or Set -OSUninstallWindow parameters on DISM successfully. I canít say why MS did this, but if you run either command on a Windows 10 1803 or higher PC that has already been cleaned up after its most recent upgrade, youíll get an error that reads ďThe system cannot find the path specified.Ē Thatís because the command goes off looking for Windows.old. If it doesnít find that entry, you get the error. If it does find the entry, get shows you the current size of that window in days, while set lets you change the value from its default of 10 days. Youíve been warned. Go Figure!
    Thanks very much!
