    The one question that comes to mind for me is this: With all these various components that are now going to be updated via the Windows store, apart from the main OS, is there going to be any way for those of us who like to maintain current ISO images to download those components and integrate them into our Windows images?

    Dunno, but if MS starts to give us just the core, and require a visit to the Store for "the rest of the features", there will be a few gazillion people who will never know what's available, nor how to get it, etc.

    I may have misunderstood your issue, but if you set up your PC with the components / features YOU need, then make a Macrium image, how is that going to change?
    If you need, in the future, to use that image, then you're back to where you started...which is the idea. So then, if there have been any updates in the meantime, let WU install them and possibly make a new Macrium image.

    I guess I'm suggesting that as a more useful strategy than keeping ISO images. Obviously, you need to do it "per machine" but still....

    @VBF, thanks for the input, but you are correct - I was talking about injecting updates into stock Windows ISO images.

    While I agree that a disk image backup is a good thing to have (I maintain those for all of my systems), I do NOT consider that to be a "more useful strategy" for every circumstance. You see, I do a lot a lot of testing which requires clean installs of various editions of Windows. Having Windows ISO images and thumb drives that allow for a clean installation of Windows in in about 5 minutes is actually a "more useful strategy" for some of those workflows, at least for me.

    I should add that my images hold 25 editions of Windows on a single image. Making 25 disk image backups would be highly impractical so my strategy is actually far "more useful" in my situation

    Indeed..in your circumstances, I agree.

    Thanks for explaining.

    Ya got me, Steve. I generally don't mess with those things . . . they may be dangerous.
