    Update History has disappeared already. Clean Creators install.


    Has anyone else had this happen ?

    I had got used to the previous Anniversary Update trimming and deleting the update history so that only the last couple of months worth was available but this seems a bit drastic. I had two 'valuable' (or some such word that MS used) updates and two 'other' updates showing until recently. Now the history is blank.

    Since mine is a clean install....from 4/14/17.....all mine are still there. What I mean by "all mine" is: I have 2 Quality Updates, 5 driver updates and 1 Other updates...and all have the same date as above.

    No....all my previous versions of 10 have never been wiped cleaned. They've always showed up and stayed there. Unless there's some setting somewhere to do so which I'm not familiar with.

    Interesting.

    I got used to seeing my previous update list get trimmed down so that only the last few updates showed. Quality... yes that's the word they used. I had two of those and two other updates. No trace of them in history now.

    Windows10 Home v. 1703 bld. 15063.413

    Creator's Update is in essence a new version of Windows, like going from W7 to W10, if you will. The update history on my system disappeared when I went to v. 1703 from the previous version. The update history on my system starts with 1703 and goes from there.

    Yes, I would expect that. I had clean installed Creators Update and had the recent updates (yes its been updated already since launch) showing up until the other day.

    Another update has just come along and shows normally.

    I think I've found a partial answer to this.

    In my case of the updates suddenly seeming to disappear, it seems to be caused by restoring a disk image made with Windows own backup utility. I would surmise that the history files are of a type extension that is ignored by Windows backup. I have been troubleshooting a weird network issue and using system images to ensure a consistent 'start point.

    Yes. I restore system images regularly (see my test PC, System Two in 'my computers'). I can confirm that the update history is empty in the restored image. All the installed updates are still listed in the control panel though. In the (empty) update history, click on 'uninstall updates' and you'll see them.

    Thanks for confirming that, and also for showing how to see them. I have been making extensive use of disk images this last few days as I try to solve this weird issue.
