    Judging by other threads on the board I'd appreciate a companion thread/tutorial called How to NOT get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

    I defeated the spring CU update on my new desktop with instructions found here and elsewhere.
    But I'm left wondering whether I'm vulnerable to getting the fall CU?
    Maybe this tutorial can give a good idea about what to do in your case:

    We most definitely would not put a tutorial like that here, as this forum firmly believes users should always keep pcs up to date to ensure maximum security. Also, old versions eventually stop being supported at all.

    We prefer to tell you how to resolve your issue safely and securely.

    You should be able to reschedule it every day, you don't have to wait to last day. If you click Restart options today, you can change it again and postpone until end of 6th day from today, November 4th. Doing the same tomorrow you can postpone it until November 5th, and so on.

    Restart options has been grayed out since I was able to schedule it to Tue 31 a few days ago. I'm guessing that I will get a warning tomorrow that the update will be installed and maybe then Restart options will be available again...

    Is setting the connection as metered via ethernet settings still confirmed to defer updates in the current version of Win 10 1703?

    So far as I know data connection has nothing to do with deferring. If you have 10 Pro, Enterprise, and/or Education editions they lets you defer upgrades. Take a look here:

    I meant does using a metered connection still prevent Windows from automatically downloading and installing updates? I have forgotten how a metered connection prevents that...

    Edit: Metered let's you pick and choose when to download the updates isn't that right? I guess it's too late for that anyway as the 1709 files have already been downloaded to my machine...

    It's explained in this tutorial:

    Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703, Windows Update will now also automatically download on a metered connection only those updates required to keep Windows running smoothly.

    MS is doing all it can to limit data download. If you haven't already, you may want to read up on it here:

    Introducing Unified Update Platform (UUP) - Windows Experience BlogWindows Experience Blog

    We can help you find alternatives to limit data if it is important to you.

    Microsoft have never really explained what that means, I have never seen any update download automatically in 1703 over my metered connection. And what updates are actually 'required' anyway?

    It didn't help that checking for updates on a metered connection didn't work properly in 1607 or 1703. You are meant to be offered a 'Download' button so you could download anyway, but (for cumulative updates, at least) it never appeared - the download would try to start then hang at 2%, the only way to complete the download was to temporarily turn off metering.

    1709 has made two significant changes - metering at last works as designed, and now the progress of each individual update is listed separately. Finally, I have seen an update download over a metered connection without asking, while others await my permission....

    Fall Creators Update 1709 seems to have resolved both those issues. Checking for updates over metered connections now appears to work as intended, and it is becoming clear which updates are "required to keep Windows running smoothly". Apparently a Flash security update is too urgent to delay, while a cumulative update can wait for an unmetered connection.

    I would think certainly Defender (if used) and security updates would take precedence over feature updates as you pointed to. Let's remember that MS is still going through a transformation period in developing 10. Much more actually needs to be worked out under the hood. e.g. Managing and pointing systems to the correct updates must be somewhat of a nightmare for them.

    Glad to see they are making strides in correcting. I'm somewhat spoiled. Although I have a metered connection I never come close to my monthly limit of 1TB, therefore I set mine to unmetered.
