Windows 10 Update Issue

Windows 10 Update Issue


I am writing to you to let you know of an issue that has been found with the next Windows 10 update.  If your computer doesn't run on the Windows 10 operating system, you can stop reading and delete this message.  If you are using Windows 10 on your computer, please stay with me.

Some of you receive e-mails from Mr. Patience, one of the embroidery software gurus and instructors.  In case you do not receive e-mails from him, this message is to advise you of an issue that has been found that he recently sent out to those on his mailing list. I have checked the validity of the message, and feel it is important enough that I should make sure you are aware as well.

Microsoft is about to release a major update to the Windows 10 operating system in early October.  There is a problem with the update. Before proceeding with the installation, the process does not check the computer in question for sufficient free space available to download all the required files on the hard drive.  If your hard drive is getting full, you could be at risk of the update making your computer completely unusable, as the update will keep trying to download the files and crash your computer.  Unfortunately, Microsoft also doesn't inform how much space it needs for the update beforehand either.  If you want more information from reputable experts, check out the following links:
