    Hi Andre
    I am on 1709. Just forced the update.
    I am not a Windows insider

    Flemming,

    If the above gives you the same results, then there may be an issue on Microsoft's end, and you may have to try again later to see if it may remove the devices then.

    I would still recommend to change your password and enable two-step verification just to be safe.
    flemmingk, do it ASAP, but could be some problem on MS servers.

    Edwin, you assume that flemming created new user account? As I'm understanding, he sign in with existing MS account

    Not necessarily, I've had it where I've carelessly wiped a hard drive for a clean install but forgot to un-link my MS Account; then go to OneDrive and find I've got 8 or 9 devices listed there; same machine and serial numbers but different Builds and Product ID's.

    Two appear exactly the same but with double the memory/RAM & larger hard drive. Have you updated the memory & HD on your surface book 2, this may explain the discrepancy in that case or is that one of the devices which isn’t yours?

    Thanks Brink and Edwin. I have already changed to local accounts and deleted the Microsoft account

    Hi all
    I created a new Microsoft account.
    I don't have any Surface Book

    To be clear, all the problems were with a new Windows account which I have now deleted

    Still getting loads of spurious devices that have never been used by me with my MS account.

    Attempting to delete them gives the following:

    Definitely a problem at Microsoft's end, and nothing to do with the Windows version, build or edition - just some real devices showing up under the wrong account.

    Flemmink seems to have exactly the same crosslinking as I see.

    It would be quite a bind to delete my MS account and set up a new one, I'll wait until they fix the bug.

    How do I/we get this problem to Microsoft?

    Unfortunately the capcha verification failed 3 x and threw me out of the form, erasing my report, so I got fed up

    The report I tried to send is in here: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17074 for PC Fast+Skip Insider - Page 19 - Windows 10 Forums
