    Windows 10 Update 1903 missing files, directories and more


    This is NOT an "Install and Upgrade." I have been running Windows 10 Pro and was just now pushed the ill fated 1903 update. So we are talking UPDATE only. Update to Windows 10 1903. Mine specifically updated on 10/9/19.


    What the heck is the Windows.old folder? It has programs since update 1903? Please explain that logic and how these programs are accessed or if they are accessed at all.


    Also, my video files are all gone, including simple .mpg files from personal camera uploads/backups. And, my pictures directory has either been moved, hidden or wiped from directory assignment because my backup and sync programs cannot find it. Is there any way to uninstall this update? Recover? Restore?

    Can any of the above options be done and restore files that are missing and/or moved? And if we do go back to the earlier update, I understand that in a month we are forced to go with this 1903. It is a mess. And oh yeah - the sound comes and goes and well. But most obvious, what is up with Windows.old that holds program files and where the heck are my video and other multimedia files? Losing those is unforgiveable - 99% to the point I am ready to say goodbye to Windows as soon as I can afford.


    Please advise.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Update 1903 missing files, directories and more

    Directory Size Utility

    First of all nice utility, Mindweaver!
    Second of all, it's so nice to see that this section ain't dead.

    I have a few questions/suggestions, maybe you'd want to see ...
    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that?
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs)
    • maybe you also add export list to excel?
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too?
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories?
