    Updates for W10 Home


    Microsoft made the following announcement...

    ..... those with Windows 10 Home will have updates from Windows Update made available automatically. Only Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise users will be able to defer updates......
    For W10 Home Users does ".... made available automatically ...." mean that the updates will be downloaded but the User still has the option to install (or not) or does it mean that the updates are downloaded and installed..?

    Thanks Cliff.

    I always take a Restore Point before installing updates. I hope that the W10 installer is programmed to do likewise.

    Restore points are really to iffy. I recommend making a system image with something like AEOMI or Macrium Reflect before updating or major changes(not the updates for Defender I mean OS updates). I usually make mine in the middle between updates, 2 weeks before the next-2 weeks after the last. I'll probably need a new plan with 10 though, because for home users they'll be forced. Probabely a few days after the last if all is well.

    The time difference between restore point and Macrium image is not overwhelming. And they go on an external. I don't trust restore points anyway cause I've never had one go right since 9841! They always roach my start menu.

    I stopped using them in Windows 7 and started making images with 7 own incremental imager(and no I never had a problem restoring with it because I used MBR and not EFI)

    Agree on the System Image. Currently, on all my personal computers, I take a System Image the day before I install the MS monthly updates. But then I have had control over when the updates are installed. On the day of the install I take a Restore Point just prior to running the install - if something went wrong I would rather try a System Restore to see if that fixed the problem before resorting to an Image Restore.

    In addition when I run OS updates I ensure that nothing else is running so as to try and give the updates the best possible chance of installing in a reasonably clean environment.

    But if I read the info correctly, MS will no longer push out updates on a monthly basis but rather on a "when ready" basis which could be anytime and the user has no control over that time. That makes me uncomfortable and really goes against everything that I advocate about installing OS updates.

    Just stay in the slow ring then, and they should all be bug free.

    Sorry Cliff..... I am not familiar with the term "...stay in the slow ring..." - you will need to explain.
