    I went through microsofts web site to get my update because for some reason my laptop was not receiving it even though my desktop did immediately..says its 44 percent done I hope that it works

    No, I downloaded it directly. It's not an issue of getting it, it's an installation failure. I'm currently stuck with a forever rebooting computer due to the failed Windows Update KB3172985 which does not like the Users Profile folder moved from C: This update installs, fails and retries daily. I was hoping that the Anniversary issue would fix this problem. Luckily, I had low expectations!

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    I have the ISO downloaded, but not written to a Flash drive yet and won't do it until tomorrow. I'm just too tired tonight.

    Bathtub plumbing issues are finalized; upgrade is complete.

    So, tomorrow I will use Rufus to put the ISO onto the flash drive and then install to my pristine second partition.

    Goodnight all.

Specifically, it says: "Your files, apps, and settings can't be kept because your current version of Windows might be installed in an unsupported directory or you're trying to install an older version of Windows."

    I did a clean install in W10 Pro and have moved the Users Folder to my D: per the tutorial here and also moved the Program Files to my D: drive. I've only had this installation for about 2 weeks.

    My only choice is to cancel this update. Any suggestions?

    The tutorial, which I have written specifically states and warns not to relocate any other system folders than Users folder. This from very beginning of the tutorial:

    Microsoft does not recommend relocating, moving ProgramData, Program Files, Program Files (x86) and Windows folders. Too much is depending on information and data stored on these folders and relocating them might cause serious issues
    (Extract from Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums)

    A relocated Users folder does not prevent in-place upgrade, I've done a few upgrades today without issues. A relocated Program Files folder makes in-place upgrade impossible. That's the culprit, reason for your issue.

    You might get upgrade done if you move Program Files back to C: drive but I doubt it. I recommend a clean install to prevent future problems.

    Release + Insider Preview Home Build 16179 (VMWare)

    I just don't understand why one would want to move the Program files directory over to a new hard drive. I understand that one would want to install programs onto a HDD so that one could save space on the primary SSD that one has Windows installed on, but to change the ENTIRE Program Files folder to a different location seems a little excessive IMHO.

    Please explain if I sound ignorant on this opinion or if my conclusion seems baseless.

    You got it wrong.

    Program Files (x86) folder only exists on 64 bit Windows, that's where 32 bit software will be installed on 64 bit systems. Program Files folder exists on both 32 and 64 bit systems, it's where 32 bit Windows installs all software by default, and on 64 bit systems that's where 64 bit software will be installed.

    If you have Windows 10 64 bit, you most certainly have Program Files (x86) folder.

    Yes, I can also hide folders and get a screenshot and post "See! I have no Windows folder!".
