    I don't know if it this still works, You can fool windows into thinking your Ethernet connection is metered and it won't do a feature upgrade, just security updates. There is a tutorial here on windows 10 forum.


    @Edwin



    I had the same problem on a clean install. Here is what I did. I go to the windows update dialog in settings. Leave it open, wait tell it updates. Restart when completed getting all your drivers & other updates. Repeat and it should install Microsoft defender update, sometimes it will say it failed, when it didn't.
    I came to the conclusion that Windows would not fetch SATA Controller drivers on a clean install so, I always go with an upgrade and just left it at that.

    I wonder if it is a driver signing thing(chipset, disk controller or Intel Rapid Storage Technology(IRST)), now that it is strictly enforced with Redstone 1.
    I'm going to stay away from the AU until it "stabilizes". It sure sounds like a lot of problems for such an "important" update.

    Keep in mind, people with issues are quick to post their issues on an online forum like this.
    Those that don't have any issues, hardly ever start a thread just to say nothing happened.
    Thus things will almost always appear to be a lot worse than they really are.

    For me it was something like 1 of 10 had an issue. Maybe even 1 or 12. I've lost track of how many test upgrades and clean installs I did.
    I've been using PC's since DOS and this is the one and only time anything like this has ever happened to me. I consider it a one of.
    Just my 2 cents. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

    And I appreciate that ... I was in database management for over 25 years, and I've learned it isn't so good on the "bleeding edge" sometimes. And you are absolutely correct about folks tending to report problems not good things.

    I had also a Problem with External 1TB HDD, after trying to repair Disk, I ended up losing almost all Data.
    It happened 12h after I upgrade from 8.1 to 10 (1511).

    The Common situation for all user´s is that, it is happening with External USB connected Devices. So, may be this is the Root of the Problem.

    +1,, It's really hard to say how many really do encounter this issue and the article claiming that "many" are having it makes me wonder where they get the information from. But the way I look at it Softpedia is good for sensational articles that generate more hits than they have fact,, the things that matter. IMO.

    The issue for me is that people don't choose or control when to get the upgrades to the next build of Windows 10.

    Unlike the Get Windows X app, which allowed some control, for Windows 10 Home users this upgrade will just happen one day when mostly they aren't expecting it. I don't think there's a warning or message that now would be a really good time to make a backup, for instance.

    If Microsoft are going to upgrade people's machines with no control or warning, then it needs to be 100% reliable (or at least 99.999%). If they offered it as an upgrade which people could choose and prepare for, then the reliability bar could be lower, but they don't.

    The fact that it seems to have happened to quite a few people (including a Forum regular) suggests the update isn't reliable enough.
