  1. Each MS update, I restart and lose my desktop and history


    5 updates, five restarting everything from my pinned icons, my folder for desktop art and favorites in windows; pretty much my entire set up everytime it resets. Why - is there a fix outside of download before hitting reset for a mundane security patch; this has only started happening in last two months...

    File History restart

    Hi Jim,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    To change the backup drive for File History, the current process should be stopped. I suggest you to try the steps listed below to stop file history on an older drive and restart it on a new drive:



    Change File History backup drive:

    • Open Settings and navigate to Update & Security > Backup.
    • Click on More Options, scroll down to locate
      Backup to a different drive section, and choose Stop Using Drive.
    • Plug in the new storage drive, navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Backup,
      and choose Add a Drive.
    • Restart File History and configure it by referring to the article

      File History in Windows
      .


    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    If nothing shows in update history, try clicking on 'uninstall updates'. Sometimes this list is more complete. Having said that, I have nothing new in either list. Bree

    Thanks, Bree. I followed your suggestion and it worked. Each MS update, I restart and lose my desktop and history :)

    Each MS update, I restart and lose my desktop and history

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Each MS update, I restart and lose my desktop and history :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
