    There are times when I have to use a check, but for the most part, a box of checks now lasts me several years, rather than months. One more industry bites the dust.
    I pay my bills online so I don't use checks either. However older people like my relatives only use checks. They are over paranoid and don't trust anything online.

    Don't get me started on that. I select English US as thats the keyboard layout I have. As soon as I change my location to Canada, windows installs the English Canada language pack. For Cortona compatibility as near as I can tell. If I select English Canada as my main language my keyboard is all messed up with some of the French letters etc.
    It's even worse on my raspberry Pi, it installs English UK as default, that really messes up my keyboard, lol.
    I think that must be why I can only understand/read/write in English US. My keyboard never gets messed up.

    Agreed, Clint, but how will they isolate only those who had the issue? The code would still be there in 1809 for those who update in the future, and here we would go again . . .

    All updates should be standard or we'd really have a mess on our hands.
    Something tells me it's not code in 1809 as such - it was in the upgrading logic. This should be isolatable and fixable. I believe that if you have installed 1809 without incident, it's not going to suddenly rear up and start deleting files on you. However, as unlikely as it seems, it is just possible that I could be wrong...

    As my Windows is in original English, not the later colonial versions of it, my spellcheckers warn about misspelling if I for instance forget u from words like favourite or colour. Even the Settings app uses "correct" spelling.

    I know it drives me crazy. They force you to take English classes in school then when you travel you think they speak and write English but no many words just confuse you.

    So confusing. Why can the entire world use the same English language. Wonder if other languages have this issue or it is just the terrible English language?
    The blame lies solely with the English (US) dictionary compilers for not staying with the original spellings.

    I write one check a year. One. For property taxes. The state of Maryland will let you pay on-line with a CC, but hit you with a 3.5% "convenience" fee. Right!

    Sorry, OT, had to say it...

    Cheque is french word and spelling,
    cheque
    tʃɛk/
    noun
    noun: cheque; plural noun: cheques; noun: check; plural noun: checks

    • an order to a bank to pay a stated sum from the drawer's account, written on a specially printed form.
      "they presented him with a cheque for £4,000"
    That spelling was used in UK as far back as 1700s.

    Many UK English words use an original French derivate e.g. Insider Programme.

    Of course, any Brit knows UK English is the "Lingua Franca" of Europe - LOL.

    I feel sorry for foreign exchange students that go to school in other "English" speaking countries only learning they have to spell words they knew differently then what they were taught

    Right, but I was referring to future updates by people who have the "problem system". Am I making any sense?

    Old Windows 7 machine that the owner decides to update to 1809 much later. If they haven't isolated the code that causes the file deletion, would this guy/gal lose all their files?
