    If so , do you think its worth to roll back to 1803 and upgrade to "final" 1809 next month ?
    Why anyway ( ?) , this 1809 runs like a jetfighter and I did not encounter any of these bugs , data lost , etc.........
    An alternative..... Wait to make sure the New and Improved 1809 is not digesting users machines, use MCT to create an ISO, use the ISO (mounted) to run an In-Place Repair. You won't lose a thing. Maybe some settings to tweak. It'll tidy-up the OS if anything is amiss, whether you have noticed it or not. Run time <30 minutes.

    Costed me a lot of time to upgrade from 1803 to 1809 , all my settings were lost and had to apply them all again ( same story after every upgrade !)
    Missing my Classic Context Menu , which is not supported anymore , we all have to live with this ugly grey,wide "new" menu.
    The contextmenus needed some time also ( " open with ".....!)
    After all this waste of time , I got a fine OS , which I can work with and then ................the upgrade is paused ( bugs )......!!!
    I was catching up on my reading the other night and came across this app in Maximum PC mag. I've have not used but thought it looked interesting.

    Yeah...a webinar for IT pros about features of an update that's still not publicly re-released! Unless they release it sometime in the next seven days. (Yeah, right!) </s>

    Nice tool indeed , not needing it if you choose for upgrading with your existing software intact.
    Problem is ; MS is changing setting ( contextmenus, displays, icons , etc.etc.) after EVERY UPGRADE !
    I could still use all my software , I used in 1803, after the upgrade to 1809. Only your personal settings ( and tweaks ) are gone and set to "default" by MS , Cloneapp does not backup these settings ( and tweaks !) ............

    It would be great if you needed to do a clean install of your current installation. Of course, an untainted system partition backup would make that easier in case of an emergency. But maybe some would want a fresh install just to get rid of all the dead wood that accumulates over time. Back in XP days, I used to do that twice a year. But I outgrew it.

    I use Winaero Tweaker, with which I do most....... you guessed it..... Windows Tweaking. You can save all the tweaks and apply them all in couple of clicks from saved file. .
