    Upgrading inequalities from desktop to laptop


    Windows 10 pro on both desktop and laptop. The laptop upgrades every few days but the desktop never does. What's going on.

    Which upgrades/updates do you mean?

    Scheduled updates to universal apps (frequent)
    Windows updates
    AV updates
    Some other updates

    Thanks!

    It appears to be the so called anniversary upgrade. I found a thread on this subject that I'll look into this morning.

    The safest approach for the anniversary upgrade- which is as is widely reported- giving significant problems to some users- is
    a. to create a full disk image of your existing system (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) )
    b. download and create a bootable medium for the upgrade
    c. do the update manually rather than letting it simply download

    A number report the update doesn't complete and rolls back, so if you download it once like that, you can retry without downloading it again.

    Thanks for the information. I just might leave the desktop as it is and not do any upgrades. I have sensitive data on it that I can't risk compromising.

    If you have Pro (e.g.) you can defer the upgrade in Settings.. otherwise you should block updates.
    See Tutorial section for more on that e.g.
