    Eddie is right, I had a typo, had forget th at the end of the word hundred. Muchomurka is right, another typo I made is to write 100,000 when it should be one million, 1,000,000.

    In any case, the exact wording on Insider Blog is "one one-hundredth of one percent". One percent from 1,000,000 is 10000, one one-hundredth of it is 100.

    Post edited, typos corrected. It says now:

    There are some strange heads at Microsoft. Good job it's not the only metric.

    If files are deleted by owner of pc they normally go into recycle bin why have they not gone there when deleted by Microsoft

    That is actually optional:

    Presumably, the MS delete was of the "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin" variety.

    FYI.... If you have your system set to use the RB (the conventional way), holding Shift when deleting files bypasses the RB - it does offer a confirmation dialogue if you've ticked "Display delete confirmation dialogue" box.

    Oh grrrrrrrrreat.... Next item on the list: PC wouldn't turn on! After some begging and pleading it finally decided to turn on (yay blue light) but after being on the desktop, Windows could not see one of my external HDDs. After plugging it back on and a restart, all was fine again... Stupid update, you need to die! I almist

    Any news on when 1809 will resume to the public? Looking forward to making a clean start.
    Hi there
    if you want it as I posted about 4 / 5 posts ago it's available again via UUPDUMP -- select slow ring on the option and then download language / edition you want -- unzip file and the script will create an iso for you -

    not necessary to be an insider

    - "Seeemples" !!!!


    UUP dump

    Cheers

    So most of us know that the safest way to store user data is on a drive that's not C: right? Usually a secondary drive. Often, 'D:' There are of course, and always have been, OS default folders for Documents, Downloads etc at C:\Users\<Username>

    Why is it that some people are so attached to these default folders that they can't help but use them? Is it Microsoft brainwashing? Is it a pavlovian response? Microsoft rings a bell and everyone drops their data in those folders? Do people know they don't have to use those folders? Do people know they can create folders with the same names on D: for example. (Adding shortcuts for these folders to Quick Access/Desktop/Taskbar as needed?)

    I hear some people are so attached to these default folders, that even when they do use a secondary drive for user data, they 'move' the default folders rather than creating new ones? Why? Do people not know that you can set most programs to 'Save' or 'Download' to any user created folder no matter where it is?

    What is it about C:\Users\<Username> that is so compelling to people that they can't live without it?

    Edit: To play Devils advocate i suppose if a PC has several users, using the default folder hides user data from each other? (Providing the users aren't Admin who can see all profile folders)?

    Most don't know of anything else and/or don't know how to change. Some think that those folders are protected (False) and think it safest place for them. I have seen many use Recycle bin as storage or redirect to Desktop not even realizing that it's same place (Users folder).
