    Why do you some people choose not to install updates during the upgrade process? What do you recommend?

    Ok, so I can do the Creators Update from the ISO within Windows, but if I want a bootable usb as well I can not do that on the same usb as the 1607 bootable usb, but is possible with 1703 and some mucking around is that correct?
    The recommendation I would make for wanting to keep multiple builds onhand would be download and store the iso images on a secondary drive where you either one build at a time and use a 3rd party freeware app to see the particular build of the day you want written to a single drive or buy a few more and label each one for a particular build. I did commonly for both the 32bit and 64bit flavors of various Linux distros as well as testing the various beta for 7 and previews for 10 builds as well as keeping the various updates except that November 2015 mess! onhand for ready use.

    The only bug seen so far here has been the second taskbar seen on the secondary monitor vanish completely once the Creators build finished up. Been all over the display and other setting and no go since I usually have a minimized Task Manager window open at all times as well as the input from the tv tuner/capture card on the secondary when checking up on things on the primary. Now suddenly not even the UltraMon app used for some time now can't even get the second taskbar applied to show up. That's rather a minor bug to some extent while running backwards to the Redstone 1 Anniversary might be the solution in the long run.

    The mention of that here is for those of you who also happen to have multiple displays in use and may run into this type of problem if also having a secondary taskbar in use. Yet a 3rd party Windows gadget bar wanted a quick repair of it's own and shows up without a hiccup of any type.

    What about installing updates during the upgrade process, what's the reason people choose "not right now"?

    I use Macrium Relfect v6 free for image backups but it doesn't allow for individual file extraction so I'm waiting to see if Macrium v7 free offers it.

    Can anyone recommend a free backup software that allows individual file extraction from full system images? There's EaseUS Todo backup free but I've heard of people having issues with this software...

    Macrium Reflect v6 free certainly does allow individual file extraction. Right click on the .mrimg file and select explore. Make sure to check the box for enable access to restricted folders:

    Once you have the image mounted (exploring), you can copy files out of it just like any other drive letter:

    AGREED and also why I use Acronis True Image as the preferred Choice over the older for W7 note Free offer by Macrium Reflect which by the way was What Was Available At That Time as a Working Free Version Of a Paid For software! That was why the guide was written when 7 was new! However we have to all move past Late 2008 into Early 2009 to the present moment.

    At this time however besides the option ALREADY INCLUDED IN WINDOWS namely the Backup & Restore section in where now? Oh How Often The CONTROL PANEL is neglected! I will have to say the VIP Member Boozad did an excellent job at preparing An Easy To Follow Guide here at 10F to make things simple to follow when opting for the built-in Windows option! as explained in the guide seen at: Create System Image in Windows 10 while Acronis and other 3rd party PAID FOR softwares can also do some fine work!

    The Difference Found between the MS Built In option now seen for several years in contrast to the 3rd party softwares like Acronis which many years back received Very High Recommendations is that Acronis True Image "Compressed" system images much tighter then the Windows tool. 420gb on a Windows made image would be only 360gb or less even when using Acronis T.I. in contrast. Yet! Both could be found 110% reliable!

    Hmm, another person I've spoken to a lot about Macrium Reflect was always adamant that individual file extraction wasn't possible with the free version. Maybe he or I mistook this for another feature. I believe individual file/folder backup is not available in the free version.

    I just tried this with an old 8.1 image I have, I extracted out a couple of notepad files and sure enough they open as normal, so not sure what all the fuss was about.

    Assuming a USB stick has two partitions, one of which contains Windows installation files, is it bootable?

    As long as the first partition is the bootable partition, it should.

    I take it then there hasn't been any of the issues that Microsoft warns manual installers of, as I assume everyone here has manually installed it now...

    I might proceed with the manual update. Are there new privacy settings in this update to make sense of?
    As with ANY build upgrade, this forum strongly recommends you make an image backup first.
