  1. Creators Update rollback possible?


    I am using the upgrade assistant to download the Creators Update and have a screenshot that states "It's easy to go back if you don't like it." I currently have Version 1607 OS Build 14393.1198 Windows 10 Home. I had read that Version 1703 is the more secure Windows 10 version, and was curious as to why I would be offered the option to rollback if I don't like it if 1607 is no longer considered the secure version?

    In other words, it makes no sense to offer a rollback option if a previous version is considered unsecure or less secure and since a system check is initiated before your download for a compatibility check; I really don't understand the reasoning behind this one.

    Microsoft is saying the 1703 version is the more secure build and if your machine can support it through the compatibility check; then why are they offering a rollback option? It is kind of like saying "If you don't like having a more secure OS, we will give you the option to be less secure again; so it is your own fault if something goes wrong."

    Anyway, I thought this was a forced update to those machines that pass the compatibility check as shown in my screenshots:

    Creators Update rollback possible?

    Windows 10 always gives you the option to rollback, usually within 10 days, so you can test drive the update and see if there are any older device drivers for sound, video, printer, etc that are incompatible. This would be unusual but at least the option is there.

  5. Forget about drivers for a moment since we are addressing replacing a whole OS. There is actually a Microsoft Digi cab file that can show/hide updates even for the newest build. I guess ultimately Microsoft played it good on this one, because if you notice, Microsoft addresses the new Build as more secure as per my screenshots.

    So ultimately, regardless of drivers; why would anyone want the less secure of the two OS build environments? Remember, I made it a point to mention the compatibility check that is ran on the system before a download can proceed. Ten days on a new OS build is somewhat thin considering 180 days into a new build is usually when the problems start to develop. Rather ironic isn't it? I could have the best compatible and stable drivers for my system at the time of an in place upgrade, and the compatibility check could "O.K." it and sooner or later down the pipeline, incompatibility issues arise due to other updates that are security related and necessary for a secure OS.

    I am baffled as to why anyone would want to rollback to a less secure OS, unless they want to completely keep the computer running the old build off-line. Not very realistic; but I do know people that have test computers and the only true way to test Version Builds is to run them through the paces of being hooked up to a server provider.
