    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.
    This update is the cause of your downclocks: KB4100347 Intel microcode updates for Windows 10 v1803 - September 13 - Windows 10 Forums

    My four computers are on Microsoft accounts and all updated perfectly and run a little quicker.
    @stealth2920 -- thanks for the info. Ironically, I find my computer runs quicker on the local account which is why I stopped using the MS account.

    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.
    Yup amazing how poor some top companies backup routines are...

    Funny story... as an up-'n-coming Dev and not knowing SQL that well, wrote a stored procedure that updated the database but missed a where clause proviso (so now everything in select clause gets updated... )...

    ...then signed in inadvertantly to Production instead of Test server and updated a bunch of live records incorrectly... was quick to shut down the system and the DBA re-instated the previous night's backup - so only the morning's data was lost.. needless to say, I was banished to Gotham City since then... LOL

    @DJG did you check your power setting in Control Panel?
    Or if it is set to balanced(even if you use full C States in BIOS) does Win10 not give you your 4.6GHz under load?
    How are you checking your OC? CPU-Z? Aida64? HWInfo? Or just task manager, which is always wrong?

    So perhaps rushing this build out and skipping the whole release preview ring wasn't the greatest of ideas...

    @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.
    I use local accounts only on all 3 desktops and 1 laptop.

    No connection between local vs MS accounts and the data loss. stealth2920 in post #852 proves that.
