I don't remember Win 7 making an 'old' folder after its Service Packs (also never looked after 8 was updated to 8.1) were installed. I thought this only happens when you install Windows over an existing copy on the same hd. Someone correct me if I'm wrong?

Maybe left from before? Service packs never re-isntalled windows so there was never windows.old

Damn, after months of waiting this bigger patch of windows I was hoping to hear good news, but instead people are having more issues than ever before.

Not moving to windows 10 before the forced update function is removed or properly patched.

Kinda funny, I was 50% done downloading this update when I did some Googling to see how people were liking it, read the horror stories, and changed my Group Policy settings as fast as I could to keep it from installing (by deferring upgrades).

Seriously Microsoft, forced updates that uninstall programs, change default programs,and change Group Policy settings? I'm actually speechless. Y u so stupid?

They won the monopoly game. They can screw their product and still be no1 PC OS on the world. That's all.

I was hopping this update would fix the 10 min restart/shutdown which I haven't figure out what is causing it.

Performance after the update normalized after 2 restarts, it seems. Both boot and shutdown times are slightly faster than before the update.

This is part of "as a service" What basically is happening is like if you installed win 7 over win 7 you would have received the win.old .,.. This is not a big deal as now you can clean it up via disk cleanup under the advanced option.

It is a pain though as running an older SSD and worried about data writes to the drive.. What it seems like it is doing is here is a full working new windows set, and well we don't wanna bother trying to patch the older stuff so.. if it breaks here is the older stuff just in case to revert back to. IMO its not a terrible thing.

windows.old has nothing to do with reverting to previous version. It doesn't work like that at all.
And it's a folder that you simply delete...

oh? Cause isn't it used as a restore point file? otherwise they would ya know.. just remove it themselves with other portions of the OS.... That they do..
Quote:
This folder is created when you upgrade from one version of Windows to another, starting with Windows Vista. The Windows.old folder actually contains all the files and data from your previous Windows installation.It can be used to restore your system to the old version of Windows if you don’t like the new version. If you’re looking for a specific file that wasn’t properly copied to your new Windows installation, you could also dig into the Windows.old folder and find it.

That source is the best explanation.. and is essentially as I said.
Quote:
In some scenarios, you may be unable to perform an upgrade from an earlier version of Windows. If you cannot upgrade, you may have to perform a custom installation. When you perform a custom installation of Windows Vista or of Windows 7, Windows creates a Windows.old folder that contains the files from your previous system. You may want to recover your personal files from the Windows.old folder, and move them to the custom installation of Windows.
