The puter is shut off as is the ups that powers it for the night.

    Seems like the new build replaces the windows.old file with a new one even after multiple attempts to delete it. In the past if one already exists it will generate windows.old(1)
    That's a new one! To be honest, I've never seen it create windows.old(1). Looks very similar to what Explorer would do if you downloaded a file you already had. Like this:

    Thank you for your concern. I have managed to get rid of it, at last, by logging into Safe Mode and running CCleaner and Disk Cleanup a couple of times. It took a couple of reboots, as well.

    Release + Insider Preview Home Build 16179 (VMWare)

    We are finally going to find out more about what exact features are going to be baked into RS 2 on Wednesday!! Can't wait. I have had it with these occasional bug fixes and the usual feature enhancements. I want more concrete details about the new features that will define RedStone 2 as a major new release for Windows 10. Finally.

    I'm not too sure they have a really concrete plan but are playing it by ear.
