    Wondering if the Upgrade Assistant might be part of the problem. I used the UA to upgrade 2 desktops and found some items were deleted from my Start Menu, my laser jet printer was removed, and several game shortcuts were renamed to copy1. I did not look for missing files before I rolled back to 1806. When I upgraded again with the MCT I had no issues on these 2 PCs nor on 2 other ones.
    @SoFine409 -- I got 1809 through the Update Assistant Tuesday night and everything is there and working fine. The only issue I've found is the Windows Defender definition timestamp shows 4 hours earlier than current time on the WD user interface. The time in Windows Update for checks is correct.

    What I'm curious about now is whether the lost data issue is related in any way to having a Microsoft account. My computer's on a local account (stopped using the MS account months ago). Two people I know use the MS account and they did lose data.

    My four computers are on Microsoft accounts and all updated perfectly and run a little quicker.

    Hi there.

    I know it sounds callous but surely if you had 25 years of photos that you treasured would you only have them on one piece of media -- I've still got some of my old negatives (35 mm) from the time before digital cameras became even half way decent and affordable and if shove came to push I could still even develop these the old fashioned way with a developing tank (black and white stuff) - apart from re-scanning again etc.

    I know that shouldn't excuse an OS from wiping people's data but I can't really have sympathy with people who don't at least make some provision for dealing with potential problems with archiving data -- we've all being going on for years that people should always have backup never mind how primitive it is --even bog standard file explorer to external devices is infinitely better than none -- and external devices are cheap these days.

    Sorry there but this is one "sob story" I have zero sympathy for. (I'm not usually mean BTW but this is a case of "serves you right").

    Cheers

    Unfortunately Windows is messing with the overclocking. I was running @ 4600GHz now I'm down to 3700GHz even though the BIOS is set for 4600.

    Hi Superfly , took us almost 4 days , almost everything ok now !
    Not going back anymore . All our Eventviewer-notifications dont show up anymore !
    Only ONE (!) problem remaining ; changing colour in right-click context menu ( it used to be blue on the mouse-selected items) , its grey and I can not change it ( I know it must be possible ),tried ImmersiveContextMenu=1 in regedit, but it did not work ( it did in 1803)
    So, Im asking you again for help , like you did before.
    If I can do something in return, let me know.............thanks !
    The old trick was to disable the UWP (Win 10) version of the Context Menu and let the Win32 (Win7) version take over - if they removed the latter then there is not much we can do...
    One would normally hook (over-ride the calls in RAM) but with the ImmersiveVersion, it's highly unlikely as UWP is strictly contained..

    I feel sorry for those folks who haven't invested the time and expense to learn and equip themselves for backup. But it's not limited to the non-professionals out there. When I was a Systems Engineer with that big computer company with the stripped logo, I had a Fortune 500 class customer with very lax backup & oversight protocols. They had over 50 distributed systems scattered around the country and their OS update philosophy was to only apply fixes when support for the current version was expiring. We contractually sent Customer Engineers to the remote sites to do a version upgrade after two years of installation. The CEs found the cartridge tape drives full of factory dirt and unusable. Turned out no one had been backing up the systems since installation. Fortunately, not a single system had an issue during that time. That was equivalent to over 110 years of up time. Yes, heads were knocked at Corporate over that episode.

    Superfly , if I understand you well , you are saying its definitly not possible anymore in 1809 ?
    The "ImmersiveContextMenu=0" key does not respond at all , whether 0 or 1 , it just dont work , it stays on grey.......
    Sad, the blue contextmenu looks much better imo..........

    25years ??? couldn't have been much in data, you know how small disk drives were at that time ?? And also,, a disk lasting 25 years and yet in W10 machine !!! That would also mean that those precious files were transferred to same place on disk thru at least 4 Windows versions and never lost a thing. !!! Laughable !!
    I don't believe that story at all. No way Pedro !!!

    Yup even with WOW3264.. it no longer works - it was I a test registry key while they were unsure of the Immersive.. (just my take on things.)

    I will still check things out regarding hooking UWP API's, but for the moment we need to live with the hard-coded stuff.
