    I'm almost certain I feel the speed because my computer had been online for about 30days in a row prior to upgrading.

    Just another reason why releasing a feature update every 6 months is a bad idea. Far too often and inadequately tested. They really need to slow the pace of these updates right down. I get annoyed apple keeps forcing a new iOS and Mac OS once a year but MS are doing it twice! Lots of change for the sake of change and just getting bugs ontop of bugs and it's getting frustrating.

    We own two machines and one of these did receive the update already via WU - we've been fortunate as everything seems intact (and we have our files backed up on NAS drives anyway) and working (long standing bugs apart). Will be none too impressed if another huge feature update gets pushed out to the machine (considering I babysat the whole process til late into the night and then spent ages checking things still worked ok).

    And I've had my second hard drive, the one with all my data on it turned to RAW. Can't remeber if it was an upgrade or clean install though. I always have files on a second drive or partition which could potentially be lost on a clean install. If Windows glitches or I pick the wrong partition to install to.
    This happened to me when both my data drives were turned to RAW during an insider upgrade. I have since made it a habit to disconnect all drives except C:. When the new install is completed and seems to be OK, I connect my encrypted external HDD for an image, eject when finished and then after several reboots do I reconnect the data drives. Having only C: connected may or may not be the reason I have had little to no trouble when doing updates??

    Hi folks.

    No way did the Wintogousb work with this release - even when trying to fix boot problems with macrium etc etc.

    no issues at all with 1803.

    OK not a priority for a lot of users but it's actually great having a full windows installation (not the install stuff but a running Windows system) on an external bootable usb drive --mine was on a USB3-->esata connector to the machine. Response time was more than adequate if you set the wintogo stuff on an SSD connected via an adapter + USB3 connector to your machine.

    Meant I could have all sorts of different alternatives / languages etc on the Wintogo usb without needing dual boot and space considerations on the main computer -- plus of course it's portable too.

    Cheers

    1809 was installed through Windows Update..looking for advice?


    Hi,
    Windows 10 1809 build was installed through Windows Update on the 2nd October on my laptop.
    Ive only just found out on here that Microsoft have since pulled the update because of problems. I don't appear to have lost any files during the update and haven't noticed any problems as such yet. Boot up on the other hand does seem slower. There may be other problems but I just haven't come across them yet.
    What should I do? Ive read that you can Roll Back to 1803 if its within 10 days though I don't know how reliable that method is. Is it done through Update and Security/Recovery and select Go back to a Previous Version?

    Would it be recommended to Roll Back to 1803 and then wait for 1809 to come through Windows Update again when its fixed over the coming days?

    I am in the same boat - and decided to keep it as no adverse effects surfaced on my PC.

    Don't think it is a placebo. I benched the GDI performance to be about 25% better, and that has a real impact on the desktop experience.
