    Sorry about your wife, hope she heals up fast! Give her our best wishes.

    I'm not aware of any Windows updates that occurred over the weekend. Could that possibly have been some thing you are subscribed to from Dell, or somewhere else?

    What program, not method, are you using to do the wireless backup. I'm asking because I'm trying to get a feel for what are your best options. How easy it is to get to the backup data has a lot to do with how a recovery is handled. Can you actually look at the data on that WD and see the folders and files? Using Windows Explorer? That may be impossible to answer now, since your one working machine is now also sick. Let me know what you can, when you can.

    You and your wife take care. This will get fixed, she comes first.

    She is doing better... the first three weeks are really indescribable -- the pain and the PT which just rips the healing tissue... thanks
    I have made some progress... I was able to restore back to 9-7-2016 on the Lenovo and I have a working OS and PC. The problem I now see is there are a stack of Windows update downloading and waiting to be installed. I went into settings and Security - Updates and tried to find a setting for manual updates ... no such thing .. was able to flip option to advise me of update and let me schedule. I hope with that it will allow me to apply decide which of the downloaded updates to apply so I can select one at a time.... There seems to be updates for Windows 8 in the list I do not understand why they would be there.
    Here is screen shots of what is waiting or still in the download process.

    The one you see that references Windows 8 is the Malicious Software Removal Tool. It's also for 8.1 & 10. Not a problem. All the ones that say 1511 are updates to the Pre Anniversary version of Windows 10 10586. They are necessary to get the system up to date for the BIG one which is the 1607 Feature Update. That one (1607) brings you to the Anniversary Edition 14393. All good. You have a bunch of OFFICE updates, ok. The last 2 are vendor updates from HP for your multi-purpose printer, ok.

    You can't, in W10, selectively pick and choose which one you want. All or nothing. There is an exception to that, for some drivers, but that does not apply right now. The 2 HPs are driver updates, I think, ok.

    Bottom line, you need to let them install.

    Ok... I hope it will not remove my successful 9-7-2016 point ... I am really getting nervous on this ...
    And regarding the WD drive... it is wireless set up to capture any changes to files dynamically and yes I do have access to the drive by folder and file level. Really a neat device, have not had to use it yet... but all should be good there... thanks for your help. I am going to guess this PC will be tied up all day tomorrow loading updates.

    The 1607 update to the new Anniversary Edition WILL remove all restore points. When major version changes occur, previous restore points are worthless...MS deletes them.

    EDIT: Did you make a SYSTEM IMAGE backup? That is different than file backups. It is the guts of the OS itself and can be used to put it all back.

    Well I created System Restore file and boot disk... and I started the updates... one of the updates ran and computer restarted ... and it looks like it is back at black screen with blue windows logo in middle of screen with spinning wheel in lower center of screen... I do not see any flash of disk or other lights... think it is in a hung status... will give it a couple of hours ... and then start the process of powering off... pulling battery.. and trying to reboot.... really hate this...

    Thanks F-14 TOMCAT for your assistance.
    I had to do a Rest My PC using option to not remove my data files. This worked. But it has been an ongoing experience with this Windows OS updates. Have had problems with my HP Printer drivers since the upgrade. Think I have that in place and stable.
    With all my heart felt thanks to MS for again just dumping on its users. If I had time and energy to teach my wife I would go to Lynx or the like.
    Again Thank you F-14 TOMCAT.
