ent app.

There's a new clipboard history that syncs with the cloud, and it works across devices. This feature is also being added to SwiftKey on iOS and Android. SwiftKey also comes to the Windows 10 onscreen keyboard with this update. Another big change is dark theme in the File Explorer. It reflects the system set

Yeah nothing in this small update that I really care about but at least it's getting true attention/support unlike the former OS's. I don't know anyone who's a true gamer running anything less than Win10.

Run that app below and report back, please, would you?

honestly, I never use default windows defined folders. So documents, pictures, videos, etc are all empty.
Second thing - I block all telemetry except the ones for updates and defender.
so, really, I can't help you with your request Csimbi.

Also, I still don't have the update offered, I might be in one of those "manually update" situations Razz

No missing files here, but then again most of my user related data are symbolic links, stored on a different hard disk. Weirdly though, it DID free up about 5-10 GB but I have no idea where that originated from. I cannot see anything missing and everything is fine.

I love Win10 but it's always tedious after an update. I had to do all the standard bullshit, remove Windows.old, run Disk Cleanup, CCleaner, TCP Optimizer, O&O ShutUp to disable all the fucking telemetry AGAIN because Microsoft assumes I want my data to be shared like a slut.

Need to check my group policies too because I wouldn't be surprised if something has changed there.

The dark mode with Explorer is sexy, so I'm relatively happy.

First one. More than likely user error, stupidity.

2nd one, the tool is/was available for a while they just added ability to see what's actually being sent. Guess what, it's nothing but generic info.

Next...

Likely cleaned up old unneeded restore files/settings or did a disk cleanup. Nothing should be missing.

I never have a problem after updates, my system boots in 12 seconds flat and nothing at all lags outside of browsing local SAN drives. Windows.old is important stuff and pretty dumb to remove, imo. If you're that desperate for space get a bigger drive and/or SSD. You will have no chance of Rollback if anything should happen. And like Windows before it, yes, keeping it clean like you do is normal. All OS's collect telemetry and in all cases except maybe Android can disabled. It's just another anti-windows weak complaint.

dark mode is very nice. Cool

True, Windows.old can be very useful. Thankfully I've never needed to rollback, and I'd only foresee a rollback if the update didn't finish properly for whatever reason, or if Microsoft rolled out an update that broke all of my apps. If they did that, however, I'd already see some kind of warning pop up on social media saying: "DO NOT INSTALL THIS POS UPDATE, M$ HAVE LOST THEIR WAY" Laughing All good, anyways. No actual bugs so far... Maybe some UI quirks. The volume control pop-up looks smaller, is that just me?

My gripe, albeit minor, isn't actually with the collection of Telemetry, but more the fact that every update "resets" my personal settings which deny M$ that Telemetry. I do not believe an update should reset personal settings, because in a way, it's a naive and patronising. Honestly, such settings should be entirely linked to a Microsoft Account, not the OS itself, so if you log in the settings are sync'd and not overwritten by any defaults.

just use this app for telemetry
DisableWinTracking
you will manually check/uncheck a few boxes representing group types of telemetry and you are done in a minute. Never bother manually doing it again. That is basically the best app I could find for doing this simply, fast and safely. I have tried 4-5 apps before this.

Thx for the recommendation. It's decent! Has the basic functionality it needs. I do wish that O&O ShutUp could run every reboot though - silently. I love that software.
