    Fresh backup shows files and folders that do not exist on the system

    Both SFC and DISM finished successfully, but files/folders still show non-existing Previous Versions.

    Any other suggestions?

    BTW. I have been using Backup using File History since Windows 8.0, but still don't feel comfortable with it.

    Fresh backup shows files and folders that do not exist on the system

    Due to a lack of a further response from Microsoft, I tried the following drastic measures:

    • Reset the PC and keep my files

      This did not solve the problem
    • Reset PC and don't keep my files

      This did nit solved the problem
    After further investigation I found out about vssadmin and
    wbadmin
    . With these tools you can cleanup older shadowstorage and backups. But how come this info retained information as old as 2013 about backups after a fresh install of Windows 10 without keeping my files?

    It appears there is another source of information about backups: The disk on which the backup is stored. The MediaID.bin file seems to keep information on the files/folders in the backup created.

    Solution:

    • Deleted the backup folder on my external disk
    • Removing the MediaID.bin
    • Cleaning up shadow copies (vssadmin) and the backup catalog (wbadmin)
    • Creating fresh backup
    Now Backup and Restore (Windows 7) does no longer list old backups in the catalog and versions of files. And the "Previous Versions" tab of files does not show older versions anymore.

    Drivers will be the same. The only difference in versions is whether or not certain features and services are available.

    All I did was use the Change Product Key feature to enter the Enterprise key (from the college where I work) and after a reboot I was running the Enterprise version.

  6. I've done that too. It's by far the easiest way to go from Pro to Enterprise. No reinstalling anything. You can go from Pro to Education too, or Home to Pro or Education or Enterprise that way to. It's Windows 10's equivalent to Windows 8.1's add features.
