    Yep seems so although I got into it via the start box just typing in Security and Maintenance in fact it flagged it before I had hardly finished typing Security??

    Good notice, it seems, that Windows Defender Security (Health) Center is taking over maintenance since CU.

    Odd. I still have Security and Maintenance in my Control Panel (icons view) for build 15063.14.

    Shawn sorry mate I was just checking over the machine and took a look at Maintenance and I should have asked earlier in the window it mentions File History is turned off just what does mean?

    For example is it my private files or just system files and what do advise to do with that setting on or off??

    Hey John,

    File History is a backup feature for your files. It's turned off by default in Windows 10.

    It's up to you if you wanted to use File History or not, but will eventually be replaced by a new "Timeline" feature.

    Ok Shawn I think I will keep it as default until that new feature is fixed - otherwise both machines are really working well :-D
