    A very good reason for using Macrium reflect , Acronis or other imaging software.
    System restore has always been flaky for me. Either the restore point was missing or it failed.
    Using an external drive to image to, I have restored successfully a number of times.
    Yeah, I use MR also. But conversely, I have always had better luck with System Restore than with MR. Granted I have not needed to rely on SR for a long time, but whenever I've used it in the past, it always worked. Several times I've gone to use a backup from MR to reset my system, and was met with an error. So I try to use more than one source to make sure I can do whatever I need done. And since I have more than twelve TB's of disk space, I'm never worried about resources. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Takes a lot less with fast delta restore in the paid version. I can restore from a recent image in under 5 minutes.
    Yeah, for $70 you can keep that Rapid Delta Restore. My MR normally runs very fast when it works, and that is FREE!!!!! If it was a $20 app, I might be willing to pay that to pick up a few features like RDR. But not for $70. That's ridiculous when the free edition gives me pretty much all features I need. It's not like a daily use app. I only use it once in a blue moon.

    You can instead create a task in Task Scheduler to have a RP at each startup and forget about it.

    Sounds a plan, thanks for the tip.

    Have you tried this recently? Does it work?
    I have done it more than a year ago and it's been working fine. No issue at all. Sorry for the late response!.

    Why are we not seeing some of this stuff in these builds?

    Forgot. The Emulator does not work on AMD. Needs nested virtualization. Makes me want to try try nested VMware,

    It's Wednesday and we often flight this particular day of the week. We're working on service-side config changes and not releasing any flights today.

    We're not making any commitments, but we know #WindowsInsiders will ask, so we'll do it for you Grinning face with smiling eyes.

    One important thing I forgot to mention is that you have to check that the task you created is still enabled and working after each major update specially Patch Tuesday and Feature Updates like the upcoming one for version 2004 aka 20H1. As you know, MS has the inconvenient habit of changing your settings after those updates. If that's the case all you have to do is to review your settings in Task Scheduler and keep your task enabled.

    Personally, it had happened to me twice that MS would have changed my settings in the past with regard to Automatic RPs. you don't even have to worry about the Automatic RPs taking too much space. As space becomes scarce, depending on the percentage put on the slider 3 or 5% when setting System Restore, the oldest Automatic RPs will be replaced by the new ones. As of this writing, this is what my Automatic RPs look like:

    Hey guys did a fresh install of the build.. windows update says updates available with security intelligence update downloading at 0 % and not moving with another 3 updates underneath that say pending install, but their is no option button to install now or check for updates... I used the bat file found here to reset windows update but same thing. How do I get around this?

    Hi folks

    Language stuff AGAIN broken. How is it that this feature works on one release, breaks on the next one, works again on another release and then breaks again on the latest one -- Haven't the Windows developers ever heard of REGRESSION TESTING.

    I know using these builds we can expect to see odd defects --this is presumably the point of testing these builds - but surely Language is one of the easiest things to get correct

    All you need to do (any sensible developer could do it without batting an eyelid) is to separate the screens from the application(s) so an application will just call for a specific screen .

    In the screen there would be "objects" e.g buttons etc and label elements -- all these label elements would pick up their text from a "data dictionary" in the appropriate language -- this text would be installed at Windows install or update time -- "Seeemples" so no need for it to get broken each Windows update !!!!!

    I believe in "technical geekish jargon" the way of doing this type of development was called MVC or Model View Component -- maybe development these days is done in a much more "ad hoc" manner --who knows --years since I was involved with that type of stuff - but we never had problems supplying applications in quite a few different languages for our users and it was a simple job once the base "dictionary" had been created -- even easier today I'd imagine with things like Google Translate and other A.I around to speed up the manual translation processes.

    @martyfelker

    Not sure how to enable Nested Virtualisation on AMD in Windows -- however in the Linux ARCH (and other kernels I suspect) it can be enabled if using KVM / QEMU hypervisor with LIBVIRT service :

    I'm on an INTEL machine currently but it does work on AMD too --just replace INTEL with AMD :


    sudo modprobe -r kvm_intel
    sudo modprobe kvm_intel nested=1


    To make persistent : echo "options kvm-intel nested=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/kvm-intel.conf

    Check that it's working :

    $ systool -m kvm_intel -v | grep nested
    nested = "Y"
    nested_early_check = "N"
    $ cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/nested
    Y

    You should then be able to run nested level VM's of "Any flavour". !!

    Cheers

    I will try it when I get the chance. Thanks for the update. I have QEMU/KVM up and running on a few Linux flavors - I;ll try installing Hyper-V with the above hints.

    Here's a guide from MS for Hyper-V nested virtualization among other useful PS-commands:

    Very simple to enable.
