    Hello Steve,

    I've noticed that the update history clears itself after each new build release.

    As a test in build 16188, I toggled my Ethernet connection on/off as metered, but it didn't clear my update history.

    I've routinely used a metered connection since the original 10240 release. Far from clearing the update history it actually gets two entries for each update - the first a failure when it discovers it can't download over the metered connection, the second a success when you let it download.

    Update history starts with a clean slate if you do an in-place upgrade, even if it's to the same edition you had before. It will also be empty after you do a System Image Restore, though they will all still be listed in 'uninstall updates'.
