    What enthusiast or generally competent user doesn't image their system once they've got their base essentials set up? Try patting yourself on both sides...I've heard it feels even better. ;)

    Cmon dude. 99 percent of users on this forum dont image? You think Im patting myself on the back CMON.

    We learned to image IN THE 90s and Im sure you did too, and it STILL isnt adopted as THE form of backup. It obviously SHOULD be what is known as "backup" at this point.

    Im just trying to let them know. Ignore me whatever, its a site i learned from, gave knowledge to, and then take as a joke (dont learn from, cant teach). You think people make image backups now? LOL Why does MS depreciate the feature in their EULA now? (as of a few months ago) SALES. Knowledge stopped in 2005-2006.

    EDIT: Anyone else, have a small SSD or small Windows partition? How about sparing 10-30gb on a spare drive to ensure you never have problems again?... Easier than 1+1. Yet everybody seems to operate around this.

    TimmyP, I've been around just as long as you have, and I really must say that your behavior is quite uncalled for. You do yourself and this forum a disservice by acting like a juvenile trying to talk smack on the school playground. We all try to be helpful towards each other here and it's a safe bet that most of us who frequent this forum apply every if not all good-policy system maintenance habits when and where possible and practical.

    You cannot generalize every possible use case and say that your user experience is the one true correct way of doing things for everyone and that a person is wrong for not migrating to an operating system (and operating experience) they object to. You have no right to impose yourself upon others in suggesting that they are wrong for taking issues with certain things and should not be listened to or be given voice because in your opinion (and ONLY in your opinion) you say they stand in the way of progress.

    You can't tell others to bend, fold, disfigure and conform every user's PC use habits to only the "MS-approved" way of using their devices and doing things, because otherwise they might as well buy a Mac.

    You're free to have an opinion, just don't wield it and your time spent here like a cudgel.

    I already have an image of my C: courtesy of MS, called en-gb_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x64_dvd_cd49b901.iso

    Don't solely save anything important to C:.... that's what storage drives are for

    Yeah same here. I also use my programs in portable mode as far as possible so a mere migration of \appdata\ from windows.old takes care of most of my programs. All my libraries are on a different partition (but on the same ssd). I learnt to keep them separate in the win9x days :p

    Except the cases when it is time bomb. You'll be backing it up for months before it does its thing. Then you recover last week and it breaks your stuff again. So, you go month back and after some time same problem.
    And then you realize you do not have old enough backup. And even if you did, getting things up to date will require same effort as clean install. (Not that it takes more than 20 minutes of actual effort.)

    All kind of system restore mechanism protects you from immediate issues like borked updates. So, it is good that you run backups. I set it up for ppl too. But it does not protect against everything.

    Of course it's dated. But I have no and have never had any problems on win7. The only bluescreens I've gotten were due to unstable hardware. Everything just works.
    I've never had ads displayed in my os. I've never had files deleted. Never had updates forced on me. Never had forced system restarts. Never had my system locked if someone logs onto their ms account.

    That's just things off the top of my head.
    I'm glad you're enjoying win10 but I've read way too many negative things to consider switching.

    I havent had any issues playing games or even HDR movies with Atmos on Win7.
    Its rock stable and doesnt get fucked over by MS because fortunately they dont update anything except security now lol.
    What a blessing.

    Windows 10 update threads are popcorn moments.
    More stable my arse.

    That too...but when I had a decade of carpy internet, I made a habit of also installing those few programs that always had massive updates and image the base set up. Saves hours of downloading.

    Let's be real, most people wouldn't bother report it, and even more people don't use the default Windows folders. I don't know a single person who uses the "downloads" folder. I only use it to leave garbage I'm going to sort or delete later.

    Several people on this forum alone have had stuff deleted including me. The odds are certainly not 5 out of 2,000,000.

    A cumulative update is available right now, I wonder what M$ will frack up next.

    Edit: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4464330/windows-10-update-kb4464330

    WHY WOULD THEY EVER TOUCH THAT TO BEGIN WITH!? Jesus procreating Christ.

    And if that was the reason, that would mean the default x64 copy of Windows 10 Pro from Microsoft's own site sets a group policy by default to wipe the downloads folder periodically. W T F!

    Yeah it can't be group policy. Not many of us would even want a time bomb on their profile lol. It seems to be a onedrive issue related to its auto-save feature (aka "KFR")

    I might be late to the party but ... errr mmm a lot of people image brah' - hell I'd venture to go as far as saying most people I've met do. LOL Even my "IT" inept 50+ year old mother images using the native Windows System Imaging service. Don't look at me - I didn't teach her - when I'm off work I'm tired of that crap. Google is the people's friend. As is YouTube...

    Let's look at a few examples of "someone walks into a computer store" - Apple Retail, Best Buy, Wall-Mart, and the Microsoft Store. Granted this is the United States I can't speak for Europe, Canada - SEA, Australia etc... Excluding Wall-Mart each brick & mortar store is specifically tailored to include a purchasing experience including offering or involving External Hard-Drives, Cloud-Storage - some form of a backup plan.

    It's in their best interest to turn data services into profit and sell it as peace-of-mind. Often on the back-end of the way those services function whether or not the customer/user is aware, "passively or actively" Imaging is involved. Now with E-tailing becoming more popular this affects things somewhat but as the Internet is more attractive than ever people aren't stupid - they're active and aware of data-loss.

    People can walk into stores and the above scenarios play out or they acquaint themselves accordingly online via News articles, blogs or YouTube tech Channels that are now more than ever reaching subscribers in the millions.

    - Point made.

    I think maybe they need to use more in house beta testers instead of forcing the general public to test it.

    Windows XP was perfectly stable after SP2 was released.

    Windows 8 and 8.1 were perfectly fine as well. The only issue with 8 and 8.1 was the last of a start menu, and that was only a problem for people incapable of adapting to change. Both Windows 8 and 8.1 were perfectly stable.
