    A few days has passed, but Windows Update still says 'Your device is up to date' on my Windows 10.

    You can upgrade your Windows OS anytime you want too. Most of us never got any update for 1607. We had to download it manually then mount it, and run the setup.exe to install. There is also another way that you can, on your Update page, where you go to check for latest update, WAY AT THE Bottom there is something like Learn More or check other options .....forget what the exact wording is....but you can click on that too, and follow all the prompts, and that will upgrade you to 1607 also. So you do have ways to upgrade if you want to use them. I will post a link that you can use to download the ISO from MS if you want to use that method. Mike.

    I have already burnt Windows.iso onto a DVD, but I am waiting to see whether the following works.

    Just curious here - how will you ever tell if it worked? You could wait ten years and not know if changing the permissions on the folder worked - or there was simply a glitch somewhere that kept the Anniversary update from showing up in Windows Update. Granted, you will know if it failed to work if you get the Windows Update anyway. Although, I suppose it is possible that a failed update to 1607 might show up in Windows Update history.

    Or if you look in Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient/Operational in Event viewer

    If Windows Update shows Windows 10 version 1607 but it cannot be downloaded, I think it works.

    If it's showing as available to update, but just won't, maybe you need to Reset Windows Update. Just a thought...

    That is odd. I have done at least a hundred restores to SSD with Reflect with no issues at all. What model SSD?
    I have SanDisk SSDs.
    I've had one SSD for ~2 years and the other two are only 8 months old.

    Overall I've only had ~30% success rate trying to restore OS partition images to SSDs.
    The main issue is failure to boot after re-imaging (Windows and Linux Mint).

    I haven't had any issues restoring data partitions.

    I've taken to imaging all operating system partitions in a single image (instead of an image for each partition) which has improved the success rate slightly.

    By way of comparison, I've only had 3 or 4 HDD re-imaging operations fail in ~7 years.

    I saw somewhere that they aren't releasing any new features in 2016 (so no November Update this time). So you may have a long wait.
    They probably won't have time, considering all the problems so many are having.

    So far, I don't have any, but that's today . . . tomorrow's another day . . .
