It’s not a secret that many users experience driver issues in Windows 10, and it’s also not a surprise that some have to uninstall the drivers Microsoft’s operating system provides because of these problems.
Windows 10’s core code is also making its way to mobile devices with the Mobile and Mobile Enterprise editions, which will replace Windows Phone 8.
The only reason we now know about it is because bewildered PC users have been posting on forums online since the end of July asking why they now suddenly had a hidden folder in the root of their hard drives taking up so much space.
“I know of two instances where people on metered connections went over their data cap for August because of this unwanted download”. While that may sound a little suspicious, a Microsoft representative confirmed that Windows 10 will indeed download for those who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update.
In response to the publication’s questions, Microsoft representative replied that all users who have opted for automatic updates through Windows update will, Redmond will ensure that upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they’ll need if they decide to upgrade. Shouldn’t that have been determined before the OS was downloaded?
However, KB3075249 and KB3080149 appear in Windows Update as optional. In our testing, we lost no files or installed programs, although be aware that you may see a few default Windows apps disappearing – Windows 7’s versions of, for example, Solitaire and Hearts will not transfer to Windows 10, because Windows 10 has its own.
If the remaining issues are repaired, Microsoft then pushes the build to the fast ring of the Windows Insider program. That, of course, is just an opinion.
As for the future of Windows 10, the Threshold 2 update (the original codename for Windows 10 was Threshold) is expected to be available in early November.
