    Good Day, MDL,

    I have not been on these forums for some time, so excuse me if this has been answered.

    I have a Machine running Win 10, which was upgraded from a working copy of Win 8, that was upgraded to 8.1, so as you can see, its quite an old install.

    I now want to clean install Win 10, but my question is, there has been so many updates! and i dont want to re downloaded all of them. Is there any way to back up all these updates and just install them on one quick batch when i have done installing Win 10?

    lol. I remember when Microsoft was getting ready to release Windows 10, one of their selling points was that you could do a system reset and not lose your updates. That it would use the Windows install itself to recover, and therefore it would use the latest files. :p

    I think there was a bunch of stuff that never made it to Windows 10 that they were promising. Android app support was one as well.
