    Presently I will be keeping the 385 not 383 build running until August 2 when the General release form of the Redstone 1 anniversary update is available with plans for a full clean install. 7 Ultimate on the second HD part of the dual boot here last saw a fresh install in June 2013 and is overdue there. Been too busy getting other people situated with 10 before time runs out as far as moving up from either 7 or 8.1 and simply won't have time now for a new build every other day! "another one already?!"

    Hmmmm, that's a thought. Or, they might extend the free offer a few days?
    Clearing out the original free upgrade and preparing for the next onslaught makes more sense.

    Yes, I'm definitely a fan of the clean install, especially when it comes to a major upgrade such as the Anniversary Edition.

    And from everything I've read for the past couple of months, I no longer think they might extend the free upgrade offer. Instead, I'm quite sure they'll continue their all out onslaught of "you better upgrade now, or you'll have to pay".

    So, yeah, I'll clean install the Anniversary Edition and then reinstall all the apps I use on a daily basis. Before I do that, though, I'll

    1) Make an Image of my current Retail Build.
    2) Find the keys to all the apps I use. (I keep those in an Excel spreadsheet file)
    3) Look for Tutorials for everything I want to do to customize my system

    And a few other things, but those are the most important.

    Will be relying on Windows Update for my upgrade. Unfortunately I just haven't got the time to clean install and get everything back on how it was. That's why I stay well away from anything insider related as troubleshooting and bugs stifle the limited amount of time I get to use and enjoy the computer. Am just hoping the whole process goes smoothly. The last major upgrade seemed to cause problems for a lot of people from what I remember. So I'm probably one of the few not looking forward to this. It's an unavoidable upgrade but am reasonably happy with my current install so could do without the risk. I just hope everything still works as it does now when it's completed!!!

    Today being Patch Tuesday I wonder if an update will be released for Windows 10 as usual. Seems pretty pointless with this big update looming.

    The point is to squash any remaining bugs that may be lurking on selected systems. Since we all have widely differing systems, I may find something that you won't see and vice versa . . .

    So, a new Build isn't pointless at all . . . In fact, I've seen a couple of anomalies that straightened themselves out, but still needed to be reported in Feedback. Mainly, they need to be fixed so that it won't scare the bejeebers out of a newbie or three.

    Wynona do you have any idea how big the Redstone update will be? My wife is currently overseas and has internet with a strict data limit, and she was wondering. If it's only around 2GB or so she'll be fine, but just wanted to ask.

    Thanks much in advance, and take care.

    The TH2 here had been a successive upgrade from 10565, 576, 10586 Insider to 11/12 update which then became buggy after two months. I went that route to example the upgrade by update method MS was bringing at the time while it's a "No Brainer" at this time to simply slap a clean install of the RS1 once available for download. Allowing it to simply update wouldn't be enough at this time anyways as the second OS 7 Ultimate drive will also be wiped clean for a fresh look at 7 there as well.

    With the recent as well as latest build proving to be far more stable as well as seeing most all of the bugs worked out which is the norm for the first year or so with any new version of Windows now no longer seeing service packs however the RS1 seeing a clean install should run for a long time without issues! This is what will be found out.

    Sorry, Rob, but I've never paid much attention to the size, since I'm on unlimited, but slow. Surely someone here will know, though.

    I would think that it will be somewhere around 2 1/2 to 3 GBs.

    Thanks Winuser and Wynona.

    She's set to metered anyways, we'll wait until she gets back state side before we open the floodgates then
