  1. October 12th Fall Creator's update f'd my pc and it's clone. 20 years lost!


    After hearing about the Fall update destroying files on people's computers I tried to avoid the update. I did a complete mirrored update the same night that I delayed the update but when my PC was shut down for the night the update forced itself upon shut down. The next day my PC would not work, so I went to the clone disk. Amazing, Microsoft somehow succeeded in destroying that drive too!


    Microsoft are the most incompetent programming company in the world.


    I literally spend 1 to two hours a day repairing windows 10 problems and have for the last year or so. WTF!

  3. Disk bloat in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Is it my imagination, or does the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update consume an additional 20-30GB of disk space over the previous Creators Update release? Unfortunately, I didn't log my disk usage before the upgrade, but now my C: drive has 56GB of stuff, and I know it wasn't anywhere near that full before. I've run "Disk Cleanup -> Clean up system files" and selected everything on the list, including remove previous version of Windows. I also emptied my Recycle Bin, my Temp folder, \Windows\Temp folder, and \Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder. Finally, I ran Wise Disk Cleaner to delete assorted application garbage.

    Has anyone else noticed the bloat in Fall Creators Update?
