    Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    The Update was released a week ago and it slowly gets on the online Upgrading system.

    Microsoft makes also available ISO files of Win 10, 10N both have Home and Pro (pay attention to the x86 or x64 versions since they are on different ISO).

    To make an ISO a Bootable DVD One can use one of the many freeware like – http://www.imgburn.com/

    To make the ISO a Bootable USB this freeware work very well too – https://rufus.akeo.ie/

    Here there is a page that summarizes the Goodies in the new release.

    Personally I do not waste time and resource on online upgrades.

    I downloaded the ISO file of the current Install image and burned it to a DVD.

    I use Acronis TI 2016. It cost $29.99 but it much faster than any of the Freewares (takes about 10 Min. to back up a 50GB SSD to a fast HD).

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    Then I Start the current Installation and do an in-place Install (I.e., I maintained my additional programs/apps and personal files from the Win 10 1511 install).

    At this time I upgraded three computers all ran a valid active Win 10 1155 ver.

    Of the three computers Two did the Upgrade in 45 Minutes and everything works very well as before.

    One computer refuses the Upgrade and aborted itself after 30 Min. of running and doing “nothing”. At this point I have No clue to why, I’ll deal with it in the near future.

    Please Note that the new installation adds a Windows.old folder to allow reverse of the Upgrade (I think it is only valid for 10 days).

    The Windows.old folder of this upgrade is almost as big as the actual version 1155 installation to be prepared with a lot of empty space.

    As a frame of reference install of 25GB Windows 10 1511 9with Office 2013 and few other suits), after upgrade to Win 10 1607 added to the Boot SSD 20 GB Windows.old folder

    Macrium Reflect free takes about half that time on my machines. That's going from an SSD to WD blue 7200rpm HDD. My pre-Windows 10 upgrade images both restored back to 8.1 smoothly.

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    Just ran the update on my PC (just told me it was available, Update Tuesday I guess).

    Update ran fine, all my drives are A-OK. Saw it reloaded the annoying "Get Office" thing even though my Office 2007 still works fine. It didn't mess with any of my default programs, privacy settings, or anything else like that.

    It did nuke a PC game install I had (Supreme Commander), saying it wasn't compatible A little odd, probably will just reinstall it if I decide to play it again at some point. It ran fine before so I can't see what would have changed, and I'd really prefer if Windows didn't assume something was not compatible and uninstall it for me. That is a bit irritating, especially when it isn't accurate as the initial Win10 install last year left a program loaded that absolutely was not compatible lol.
