    Anyone else find this ? Is this different from what I just installed ?
    Yup, I think it's the same here.

    Found this : Microsoft prematurely releases Windows 10 Technical Preview updates for build 9860

    So I'm guessing the update KB3008956 is part of it. Going to install it.

    I have WTP installed as a WMware Player VM.
    Update installed with no problems.

    The update broke my shared folders.
    I had 2 shares, can get one working by diagnosing, but can't get the other one to show up...

This is the part of building Windows that you usually don’t get to see, since we work hard to smooth these out before it typically gets to you. There are likely many small bugs that you’ll encounter, but these are a few of the big ones that we think you should be aware of right away:

    •In some places the UI design has gone “backwards” temporarily while we’re working on the final experiences. For example in this build we know that it’s harder to join a Wi-Fi network. We’ll make changes to fix that later.

    •Another example of some UI “roughness” is sometimes Internet Explorer glyphs look garbled and items on the Start menu might disappear. Not everyone will see this, it depends on your display driver. We have a fix for this one coming soon.

    •Some machines may wake up and not go back to sleep properly.

    •Microsoft Solitaire and Mahjong games are broken in some cases and won’t launch.

    •When using 2 external monitors over Display Link, you may get a blue screen when you undock. This does not appear to be an issue when using just 1 external monitor. A fix for this one is in the works too.
    Not Mahjong and Solitaire!

    Does the multiple monitors over Display Link affect anyone with 6 monitors and 32 GB of RAM?

    I'm not even sure what display link is, but I've 5 of the 6 turned on atm and it's all good.

    I'm sorry if this is a dumb question ... but how do you apply the sysprep process on an update build? (I'm trying to understand the sysprep process, rather than moving my Users folder.)

    Can you update the build while in Audit mode?
    Audit Mode is practical when you want to customize Windows and relocate Users folder already before any user profiles are created, entering Audit Mode from last phase of installation (Method One) and doing it there because Audit Mode is the only way to use Windows normally without having any existing user accounts.

    When Windows is installed there's no need to go to Audit Mode and in any case you cannot upgrade when in Audit Mode. In my case now I moved all personal data from various user folders (documents, images, videos and such) to an external drive to make the profiles as empty as possible to make relocating faster, then run the Sysprep with this command from an elevated command prompt to move Users back to C::
    Code:
    %windir%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /oobe /reboot /unattend:X:\relocate xml
    (The answer file relocate.xml with instructions to Sysprep in drive X:)

    Then to tackle the "Sysprep - Upgrade paradox": an upgraded Windows cannot be sysprepped, a sysprepped Windows cannot be upgraded, I needed to edit one value in registry to allow upgrading a sysprepped Windows. Download and install Build 9860 upgrade, again registry editing this time to allow an upgraded Windows to be sysprepped, and finally Sysprep to move the Users back to E: where I want to keep it.

    All in all, I needed a bit more time than a system where all system folders are in default locations on C:. In my case this whole operation took two and half episodes of the Big Bang Theory from Netflix , about three times the time Lee told was needed.
