    OK, this just got weird. So, that drive shows a lot of files that it should not. But I cannot find them anywhere.

    In the meantime, I ran a chkdsk and it found nothing, so I tried an chkdsk /f, which dropped the drive offline.

    Now, I no longer have Edge installed, nor do I have the Windows Store.

    Something went really stupid with this install. Time to start fresh. Again.

    Sigh.

    I personally would consider that a bonus

    The fact that UUP upgrade does not have install.esd file anymore does not mean Microsoft has abandoned their relatively new software distribution format, first seen by Windows 8 users upgrading to 8.1.. ESD (Electronic Software Distribution) files will most certainly be an integral part of Windows upgrades also in the future.

    However, there are ESD files and then there are ESD files .

    The ESD file we had on upgrades was in fact an encrypted install.wim file, which in its turn is The Windows, containing complete Windows setup, everything needed to install it. Other ESD files in this software distribution model found in other folders are not the same.

    I just checked mine, and most files in there have less than 1000K; however about five or six have 5000K+.

    Where is that batch file posted / what is it for?

    All of that mysterious stuff on that drive perplexed me. I had cleaned everything, disk cleanup on all installed HDs multiple times as admin, as well as doing the chkdk, and nothing was found.

    Just to make sure, I opened a cmd prompt during install, ran diskpart, cleaned the drive, converted to gpt again, created the partition, and then formatted the drive without the quick option. Took around 20-30 minues to finish, but now I have some peace of mind that the drive is not malfunctioning or going on the fritz in any way.

    Right. My drive said 120+ GB were taken up by almost 66K files. The problem was that I could only find the original ~30GB of files - nothing hidden or anything, since I keep the setting to show hidden files enabled all the time.

    I have no idea what was going on. But I am re-installing everything now after installing 4971 and then taking the Update to 14986, optin to leave UUP enabled. Cool thing - as soon as I enabled IP Fast ring, the update was available to download.

    @johngalt

    John, I don't think there is a "formal" post, per se. It was recommended to me and supplied by member @Cliff S. In general, it cleans up and verifies files and integrity, and re-evaluates system health. Maybe Cliff could explain better.

    Wasn't intended as any explanation for your issue, just something I do after every new build or clean install.

    Win10 Pro, Win10 Pro N, Win10 Home, Win10 Pro Insider Fast Ring, Windows 8.1 Pro, Ubuntu

    It cleans up the WinSxS folder(component store), cleans out Windows update folder and the windows.old folder, checks system file integrity, and runs winsat so Windows can make any needed OS adjustments for installed hardware like SSDs.

    *winsat formal will not work in a virtual machine though, and will show such a message
    *cleaning out Windows Update get's rid of the install/uninstall folders, so after running, you will NOT be able to uninstall any updates if one is causing any problems.
    *cleaning Windows side by side only cleans old unneeded files, like if you uninstalled a program, and the modified Windows API copies will be deleted.
