  1. How to prevent unwanted windows 11 trying to install


    I have a 64gb Microsoft Surface Go, Windows 10. Vanilla flavour, just used for email and browsing. Of the 64gb, there's normally around 4gb free, absolutely fine.A week ago, windows update - UNASKED - tried to install Windows 11. The first I knew was when I saw the message "update failed, insufficient storage". All the 4gb had been used. I contacted MS tech support for two reasons:1. Could they remove whatever parts of Windows 11 that had been downloaded.2. How could I stop the issue returning at the next windows update cycle.The technician took over the machine, and deleted a bunch of files.

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink How to prevent unwanted windows 11 trying to install ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.
