I lose my files if I do the update of windows 10?

Currently, I use 10 windows on my laptop and want to do the update of windows 10 but I don't want to lose all my files, can anyone help?

Do you mean you are on W7 and want to update to W10?

IF the update takes place properly and smoothly, as expected, then your data (documents, music, photos, videos, etc.) must remain in place where they are. However, it was reported that some or all of the data has not successfully transferred to some people. So back up everything first.

It cannot emphasize enough, BACKUP all your data before you perform the upgrade.

If you have a backup, things go wrong, you can recover. If you do not have a backup, things go wrong, you have probably lost your data.

  • The update of Windows 10 1511 reboot loop Bootcamp BSOD ACPI. SYS

    It is a copy of my thread to http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/windows-10-update-1511-reboot-loop-bootcamp/8653... as I was asked to post here by the Microsoft Support Engineer.

    Hello

    Friday night, I went to bed with a working machine. I had a late 2013 Mac Pro BootCamp running with a Windows 10 Pro installed, the Build version before 1511.

    On Saturday morning, I woke up to my PC restart itself over and over again. It seems that Windows Update has decided to put a new version of Windows 10 on my machine without my knowledge. I discovered this after restoring an acronis backup (which took a few hours because of the number of incremental backups)

    Occasionally (about 1 in 20 restarts) it would blue screen with an error:

    SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (ACPI.sys)

    But the rest of the time he would just start, flash a window for a millisecond that says (I think) winlaunch.exe, then restart.

    I tried a lot of things to sort it, including:

    (1) restore from a backup, acronis to Friday morning, running sfc/scannow, and then runs the update

    (2) the creation of a recovery USB, enter the console, change the boot to legacy method, so I can F8, then goes into all security modes and mode of illegal product, but I can find where windows 10 now puts the boot log

    (3) restored from acronis, switched to mac, created a new bootcamp drivers usb, switched to windows and run the option 'fix drivers' before performing the update.

    Ntbtlog.txt is not anywhere on the partition. I ran a dir /s > a.txt then open this a.txt in Notepad and searched him.

    I don't know where to go from here. I can acronis restore of a windows 10 work machine the morning before installing mandatory 1511. I don't know how to delay the update no more, I noted during a restore I had delay on updates that are why it has arisen just now.

    I do not know how to find where this BSOD ACPI.sys will come (even if it happens so rarely) or this that its trying to load just before it crashes (so I can try to delete the driver etc. by the front restored windows to upgrade)

    I guess the widowed causes 10 to do a restore, then the restore fails.

    Overall, I get at the end of my wits with this, to go a completely Windows 10 installation work Friday to more than two wasted days, restore backups, try again, rinse and repeat. It's now Monday morning and I am posting this as a ditch last attempt to solve the problem, your help would be appreciated.

    If you need more information please let me know the location of the files, etc, or their names and I will do my best to have copies available for you.

    I will now restore the backup again, uninstall loading of drivers, and then try the update of windows for the 4th or 5th time.

    Thanks in advance,

    Julian

    Woo Hoo, I've solved the problem!

    I uninstalled the drivers of graphics from AMD (with AMD Driver Cleaner) and Arcronis True Image Home 2013 at the same time, then let Windows Update run its course. Now I have a machine with Windows Version 1511 10!

    It took me 4 days of downtime...

    I hope this helps someone else.

  • How to upgrade all the updates of Windows XP from a single package?

    Original title: Windows XP updates

    Is there an SP4 or a package that contains all of the updates of Windows XP after SP3 is released?  It would be extremely useful to update all of the XP machines that do not have access to the internet.

    There will be a version called SP4 update by private parties. This update has been treated since September of 2012. Currently, they are still working on it. You can access this information to

    http://www.RyanVM.NET/forum/viewforum.php?f=5&SID=3058537efee42c994a4945a016f82cc3

    Hope this helps, they recommend you to read the info from the beginning. With files and information, you can create an ISO file that can be used to create a version of XP from microsoft that you can use in the future. I do not recommend to use a good firewall and antivirus program to protect your system like back up your system regularly.

    Personally, I'm going to build me a new computer.

    OK, I reinstalled windows 7 due to getting a new hard drive. Everything works well, the installation has functioned well. Although this problem happened more than once. A Microsoft disabled all the updates? It is very aggravating when you check updates and hours and hours, nothing happens.

    Does Microsoft support more on windows 7 updates? I use a computer that does not support windows 10, so please do not ask me to upgrade. in any case, my computer is healthy and good. I want to just the updates of windows 7.

  • Install the updates of Windows 7 not Windows 10

    I have more than 30 windows 7 selected updates and when I click OK it brings back me to the GET started installing Windows 10 screen. I want to install the updates, not Windows 10 and can't find a way to do

    Do you plan on installing Windows 10 soon?

    -COPY EVERYTHING ABOVE THIS LINE-

    Once this is done, you should be without the notification and your Microsoft Updates must return to its normal state.  If you ever want to upgrade to Windows 10 new (remember, this is a work in progress and if you upgrade already on this system and active - there is a license for Windows 10 you'll never pay for related to this individual machine for the life of this individual machine) you can probably use the media creation tool to make * or * reverse the registry values (all above (: 00000001 becomes: 00000000 and all DWORD: 0-0000000 becomes: 00000001) and save this file and MERGE again.  Restart and you are back where you were before.

    * TIP * for everyone out there.  One thing I saw not advertised on the option of restoration of 30 days you have with Windows 10 is that * if * you run the media creation toolat any point in these 30 days, it BREAKS the ability to restore - even if you did just to create an ISO image, so you should have the installation media to continue.  That's because this tool recreates the $' Windows. ~ BT' and ' $Windows. ~ records of the WS on the root of your C drive and these two folders and their content after the upgrade as well as the "Windows.OLD" folder (the only 'visible by default' one of the three) are all necessary for the process of restoration work.
