    Microsoft will be updating your windows 10 starting monday. might want to start backing up any files you cannot afford to lose "just in case". You never know how these major updates will affect your computer. One thing for sure, you better check your privacy settings, they tend to get change and new settings added with updates.

    Microsoft says Windows 10 'April 2018 Update' is coming April 30

    All they do is cram more crap down our throats that 90% of the people just don't care about. It's all about being sneakier culling our info.

    I'm guessing there's no law that keeps them from reverting privacy settings. Surely there's a class action somewhere in there.

    It is to the point privacy settings is worthless. by the time you opt out, they already got the information they wanted anyway. the last time I looked at the privacy settings in windows, it was a mess and so many were duplicates, just worded differently.

    Yeah, the do the old switcheroo all the time. Yes means no then yes means yes. Why can't they be required to put it in simple terms everytime. "Do you mind us collecting your personal preference whilst you browse the web? YES/NO. Easy peasy.

    What's problematic with MS doing this, is we all paid for a Windows license. I can't not use Windows because of my job, so do they have a right to collect my data for a product I had no choice but to pay for? Google and Facebook are free, so I do think there's consideration given for that data.

    a lot of the data collecting begun with win10. they could be claiming they need it in exchange for the free updates and upgrades you received. in my book, it is all a scam. It is a good thing the data collecting begun late in my life. I would hate for them to know some of the things I did in the 70's and 80's :)

    True, but I'd argue those services have always been included in the license. I'm sure giving the free upgrade to everyone factored into all that. But when I bought my new PC, it came with Win10 already installed.

    Might be time to throw linux on my personal computer, and then use the other strictly for business. But you know it's almost impossible NOT to use you work laptop for personal.

    Any pc geeks over here?

    Here is my dilemma. I have windows 10 pc on 32gb drive. I can't install the previous HUGE update due to low space. I think that drive has only 12gb free.

    What is the easiest way to install update without swapping drive, it's emmc pain in the behind.

    Never asked me just gave me update failed screen due to lack of space.

    What I did was open services app from windows search and find windows update. Stop that service. Then go to c:/windows and delete softwaredistribution folder which contained all previous updates files. Then go back to services and resume windows update service. That freed up over 10gb of space by deleting almost 200k files.
