  1. Latest Windows Update(s) Ruined My Work


    Yesterday before I went to my office I got a message from Windows asking me to schedule the update.


    I selected 9AM because I won't be at home.


    I come back around 5 and as I get ready to go out for a bit I get another message about when I should schedule the update. I selected 5PM.


    I come back, log in and do work (I'm a C# coder).


    I'm done working for the night about 11:30.


    I start copying my latest dev folder to a backup device (both are USB external drives).


    The folder has about 1400 items in it (most generated by Visual Studio).


    As it is copying the computer starts to reboot. I assume that (yet again) some update junk was brought down.


    I wasn't asked anything; it just rebooted.


    OK, I went to bed.


    This morning (8/30) I get up and before I go out I look at my dev folder.


    NOW IT IS EMPTY. AND THERE WAS NO BACKUP.


    I watched the backup happen last night but now, nothing is there so the last 20+ hours of coding is gone.


    Thanks Microsoft.


    So now I have to start from 2 days ago which may not sound like much but it was 20 hours of work, totally gone.

    :)

    Win 10 update ruined my computer


    I will gladly dispose of any "ruined computer" that Windows 10 has "ruined". Just ship them to me and I will take care of disposing of the "ruined" hardware!

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.
