    Hi, I have a netbook with 32GB of storage. Updating Windows has always been a challenge, but attempting to install the "2021-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64-based Systems KB5007186" appears to be impossible. I am told that "updates are available, but we temporarily need some space to download." I cannot free up any more space. I have plenty of space on an external SSD drive, but I see no option to use that in order to install the update. I there anything I can do to install this update, or will I be forced to abandon this laptop as it will become unsafe to use w

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP
