    Hmm... I have noticed another thing that's a bit annoying: Fast Startup was re-enabled again. I dual boot with Linux, so having Fast Startup disabled is for the best if you ever want to safely navigate and write to the Windows OS drive from a Linux system. When I had Windows 8.1, I disabled it. I then found that when I first upgraded to Windows 10, Fast Startup was re-enabled, so I disabled it again. Now I find that the Anniversary Update has yet again re-enabled Fast Startup, meaning that, yet again, I have to disable it.

    Microsoft, will you please leave this setting alone if I decide to disable it, particularly due to having a dual boot system. I know what I'm doing, I know what I'm losing out on, and it's annoying to find such a setting put back to the way YOU want it instead of the way that I want it.

    Sorry, had to get that off my chest. *grumble ... grumble*
    Ugrades come at most twice a year. So it takes 10 seconds to rest it. If it only took 2 minutes to write this, that is equivalent to doing it 12 times.

    Thanks I just updated and got back here to search for possible things going wrong :) Now I changed mine back to disabled. I can't be sure why but I don't like to leave this feature on.

    They always turn off system restore too and erase all the old points you have! Good thing everything is working fine here.
    Total agreement in the frustration at MS switching system restore off by default. Not the smartest of moves. Most of us know to look out for this and check it but the majority of the population will be ignorant to this crucial feature being switched off - I know my entire family would be blissfully unaware and I guess that is the same for the global majority

    Downloaded the .esd, made an .iso and updated from there. Had a freeze on initial reboot and time will tell if it's an issue.

    How many people do you know who are not tech savvy and do backups
    Not many. Even the tech savvy ones who know they *should* take backups don't always do it (and I'm guilty of not making them as often as I should).

    If there's a fault in the Update which is effectively deleting partitions for some people, it will be really bad for someone who wasn't expecting the update and hasn't got a backup.

    In this village I suspect not many do make regular backups.

    Mostly seems to have worked

    Only issue is I have no Cortana, just got the search box, even trying to use it within Edge just gives me the option of Search Bing

    Anyone know how to enable it (Language settings etc are all correctly set to UK)

    When mine was ready for windows it asked me did I want Cortana to help me. There was 3 options Skip, Enable Later or Now.
    I choose now and Cortana working ok.
    You must of either pressed one of the other options.
    See if a restart will enable it or try Settings the one with the 3 dots
    Sorry apart from that I cant think of any other way to help you.

    Have you tried Brinks Tutorials
