    I did the Roll Back, quick and painless. I had performance issues though. Just FYI . If you copy your Windows.old to external media before it gets deleted you may be able to do it after the ten days. Not 100% about that. My understanding is a scheduled disk cleanup deletes it after 10 days, and once its gone, no roll back option. I'm sure those in the know will chime in to tell me if I'm right or wrong on that. It used to be 30 days to do a Roll Back.
    Hi mate,
    Can I ask a question about the Roll Back option you did..Are you talking about the Go back to previous version of Windows 10 option under Settings/Update and Security/Recovery?
    If so, Im curious to know what happens after you've done that Roll Back. Obviously you're put back to your working version of 1803 but what happens with 1809 when they produce a fix? Will the 1809 feature update be automatically pushed again (as it was originally to my PC) through Windows Update as soon as its ready? Or because you've Rolled back to 1803 Build ..does Windows Update then register that 1809 just doesn't work on your PC so it wont be offered again through Windows Update even after they've fixed the issues with it?

    Well by my calculations its now 9 AM in Redmond. Conversation should be interesting, at the water cooler, in the break room, at the coffee machine, board room etc.
    I doubt that—it’s a holiday in USA.

    Thats explains the silence from them, I guess. I'm retired, every day is a holiday, so I sometime lose track of holidays. lol.

    Fundamental rule #2 broken then too. Don't do major releases just before a holiday.


    Wonder how many people are regretting switching to SSD. With often smaller capacities than multi-TB hard drives, they have less chance of recovering files once the space gets written over, especially on laptops/notebooks etc.

    I do not get this vibe - in fact the update and its result have been quick and uneventful. New version definitely faster/snappier. I sure hope they will be able to figure out what's going on, what combo of hardware or such manifests the problem. Time will tell...
    I'm not talking about upgrades here. I'm talking about Windows in general. Yes it's snappy and it's awesome when it works, but I did many clean installs during beta testing and I got a lot of different behavior on same hardware and exactly the same build. I don't remember exactly what the issues were, because I never documented it, but the problems were real. I even skipped a few builds just because they refused to install properly. Upgrade or clean install made no difference, so I let the dust settle for a bit and tried again a bit later.

    Ugh yes, I can see that can present a problem. My neighbor was just in with her W10 laptop, luckily she didn't get the update and as less than amateurish user, she has most personal stuff in default places although has second partition. Filling it fast and I'll have to transfer some files for her soon. Almost full C: and empty D:.

    Windows 10 1809

    After having this new Windows version 1809 I've decided to roll back to 1803 on my msi gaming laptop in last day or so been having strange behaviour from it were my dedicated GPU was all ways in use for all my tasks than just for games where it's meant be the intel intergrated GPU for that. My cooling fans on it were stuck to high use and could be turned down or fully off. Had few network drop out on this 1809 version we're as 1803 didn't. And my system ram in 1809 was showing 60-65% in use while in version 1803 my system ram use was only between 35-40% in use.

    Not a big issue for me, my laptop has dual drive bays and two SSD's installed. One for Windows and a second Data Drive. A side effect of it having a 17 inch screen I think is room for two drives side by side.
    On my desktop I have an SSD for Windows and a spinner data drive. I think a lot of people went that way early on. Now that the price has dropped they just add another SSD or get a bigger capacity one.
