    I've just noticed something odd and tbh I'm not sure if it is a 'WIndows thing' or an issue with AOMEI... and I'm guessing Windows.

    I had reason to restore a disk image made on the 9th January which happened to be an image of the freshly updated current build.

    When I look in control panel at my installed programs I'm seeing the date that many of these programs were installed as being the 9th January. Is this a Windows bug in that a new build changes these dates or is it something else?

    Mines the same..I installed this build on the 8th of January. Could it be that the user profiles are copied over to the new build from the old one & that's the date you see?

    Many thanks for confirming you see similar. I've really no idea as to the cause but I suppose what you suggest is possible... I'm going to see what happens later this week with the next build all being well.

    Got an unexpected shutdown with this build in the middle of a game. Event log points to Kernel API. In the 2 years with this PC, never got that before.

    Has anyone on here found a way to downgrade your build, Other than backup, back to RC, without losing settings, programs and apps? Every time I've chosen release candidate in the insiders tab in settings, it goes right back to fast when I reopen it. And if I change to the slow ring it will stay in the slow ring. But even if I try to go from the slow ring to RC, when I reopen it it is right back to the slow ring. So RC will not stick as a setting. I've also tried turning on the "Stop getting preview builds" button, but it doesn't take effect until the next big update. So not sure how that works.
    My goal is to get Ryzen Master working again. And even after working with AMD directly, they have not been able to fix it either. So I am guessing the culprit has to be the newer build releases, as it worked fine on all of the earlier builds until the last few. But I don't want to have to rebuild the entire setup again from scratch, as I don't have that time right now. So I'd like to get one of my dual booted systems back to RC, to test my theory, without destroying my entire setup for that OS. There are people on here with more experience that I, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks.

    Wonder what would happen if you just started setup.exe from earlier version ?
    Btw. Ryzen Master is working fine in my fast insider.

    I tried that, and it would ONLY offer me the option of not restoring any of my docs or apps. So I canceled it. Then I finally decided to restore an older backup, hypothesizing that I might be able to just update it to the RC, but now my boot manager is all screwed up again. So after getting it to boot into my main OS, I pulled up Macrium R and made a new Rescue drive and a new Rescue partition. But after rebooting into the Macrium partition, and running the boot manager fix, it really screwed up my boot manager, which will ONLY give me an error message right now. I would have thought Macrium would do better than that. But it screwed me up good. So if I can't come up with anything new, I will just have to make a clean install on the other partition and rebuild that partition from scratch...
    I remember you had a Ryzen setup also, can you remind me what processor and mobo you are using? Thanks for the reply.

    It's R7 3700x on Asus prime x470 pro.
    Are you dual booting regular and insider versions on same disk ? Mine are on separate SSDs but still set up in dual BOOT and have separate MR backups for each. Didn't have any problems restoring each one separately.

    Windows Insider Fast Ring LatestKUuuntu 20.10
       #208

    I am now successfully multibooting with 5 Operating Systems each have ~250GB disk space. Windows Insider Fast Ring (for myself I see no point in installing any other Windows build, I am also using a 2 TB software RAID 0 device for storage), Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) (I am using this distro's pretty Ubuntu Studio Grub menu altho with my mobo I can boot into any OS <sorta>, Fedora Rawhide and my latest openSUSE Tumbleweed. The Linux distros are running kernel 5.5rc6. After 20 years I'm sorta getting a handle on this although this is the first time I've used two SSD's.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    I tried -- what you get is "You cant keep programs etc because you are running a newer version of Windows"

    So Restore is the only option --Not sure why that would be a problem in any case --surely people do backups before "upgrading". With sensible windows partition sizes and SSD's a backup / restore shouldn't take more than at the most 15 mins - probably less.

    Cheers
