Accidentally canceled a Windows Update.

Recommended Posts

So I was updating windows, and didn't notice it was updating. I then had to get back on and reinstall the update. While nothing seemed to change, my computer made a Windows.Old folder for some reason and I can't delete it. Also, my Tamper Protection was off after the update. I have scanned my computer and no threats were found but I am still concerned about why both of these things happened.

My name is Maurice. I will be helping and guiding you, going forward on this case.

You do have a separate case here which needs handling first.   Lets just hold off on this one until the other is closed.

For this here, it seems what you interrupted was a Windows 10 build Upgrade.   Likely it is the Build 1903 update.

Creation of a Windows.old is quite normal on a build upgrade run.

Lets keep this case on hold for now.
