    I always found it to be a slight PITA to share several files from Onedrive, as you had to create link for one item, go to document, paste link, go back etc (or put everything in zip file).

    The new Clipboard function (Win+V) really makes it easier.

    Create share link 1, 2, 3 etc

    Go to document:

    Win+V, paste link 1 - repeat

    Only slight PITA is you have to keep pressing Win+V for each link but still much easier than before.

    You could always share a folder in OneDrive.

    @Kari - just a quick one : I suppose they haven't created an image before the update?
    (e.g. using Macrium Reflect Free).
    So they could either restore the image or mount it so as to access the \documents folder there.

    Personally, I believe creating an image just prior to major updates is the best way to go.
    And turn off "automatic updates" .. (also personally).
    I agree: many laptop users have just 1 SSD, so all documents as well as OneDrive are stored on C:\
    Desktops usually have multiple HDDs. If documents are not required to be shared, they can be stored on a different drive.

    Hopefully MS hasn't pushed users to using Google Drive (Office seems to require a plug-in for that though)
    This HAS been mentioned before in this massive thread but may be worth repeating:
    Just because a laptop only has one Physical drive, there's nothing wrong with partitioning it to be C: and D:. The OS won't know the difference between physical and logical drives.My laptops are both set up this way.

    Of course. My point, however, was not that no problems if your files were deleted by Windows upgrade, just restore the backup.

    My point was that A) That should never happen, and Microsoft cannot and should not avoid their responsibility, and B) it happened also for some users who have never used OneDrive.

    I always keep my personal data on a separate partition. I find clumsy having everything on a big partition.

    Ahum ...

    Yes, you are so right and this option was indeed worthwhile mentioning...
    Don't know why, but I simply didn't think of it whilst writing my reply. Even though I have quite a few drives and partitions...
    Documents and OneDrive can indeed be stored on a different partition.

    tsk tsk tsk..deep sigh...

    I got a tsunami of errors id=1534
    look how I could solve it ;

    1. Open Regedit and navigate to the following two keys
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileNotification
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileNotification
    2. Under ProfileNotification check if you have the TDL key
    3. Export the TDL key at each location
    4. Delete the TDL key at each location
    5. Reboot PC to verify
    Note:
    1. You'll need take ownership of the TDL Key to be able to delete it.

    This worked perfectly , no more 1534 in the eventviewer !
    Still searching for a way to change colour in the contextmenu , it was blue in 1803 , its now ugly grey............

    Hi there
    plenty of ways of managing this -- personally while it's a great idea to keep separate the OS and data - on a laptop with say a 250 GB SSD it's too much of a hassle to partition etc -- with larger HDD's / multiple HDD's etc then worth while.

    Now I always then copy documents, downloads and pictures to either external USB, my NAS or cloud server regularly so I always have latest copy.

    I don't keep video / photos / music etc on the OS drive anyway --IMO those things are better kept on separate devices -- even a separate SSD attached via SATA-->USB3 connector to a laptop isn't a space hog when travelling and is less likely to be lost than a number of small USB sticks !!. You can also keep a backup OS image on it too.

    Now when backing up / restoring the OS any loss of data is avoided and it's much quicker just to backup the entire OS.

    Everybody has their own preferences -- but what people should do before any upgrade of the OS is back up the system so if it all goes pear shaped you can restore to previous version again.

    I think though while downloading updates is fine for Ms - I think it should always prompt you for each update with a little box to check - install rather than just go through the whole thing willy nilly - especially when doing something like upgrading 1803 to 1809. One shouldn't have to pause updates or anything silly like that - I can't see what's wrong with standard update downloads and have a check box when the user is ready to install them.

    Cheers

    I would never do an "upgrade" to any Windows OS, ever. Always clean format and install.
    I am happily upgraded since 1607 onwards and it does work for me all the time? So why waste time and do a clean install (plus set up and re-installation of everything else - which is very time consuming) every 6 months?

    If you don't have other things to do, then perhaps why not?

    You can link to the "folder" they are in, then its just the one link. Assuming they are all in that folder etc.

    Edit: should have kept reading the posts, especially the next one, lol.
