Look it's a bad issue/bug for those affected but I'm sure it's a bug, an unintentional error in the code.

Microsoft definitely do testing internally before releasing updates that I'm 100% positive of however they probably don't test on systems with secondary OS's installed on separate partitions.

Which is probably the reason this issue has managed to creep passed the testing to release.

How could they? It's not like Windows is designed to dual boot with Linux anyway.

So what's the best advice before upgrading Windows 10 to the anniversary update? I have 2 SSD (1 is boot OS) and 1 HDD. Should I disconnect the second SSD and HDD and update? I'm in no rush to upgrade to it.

Will this affect the boot drive?

Disconnecting non-boot drives takes little time and doesn't cause any damage, so why not.

The complains I listed are not related to system, boot and recovery partitions on the boot drive. But if you have additional data partitions on your boot drive, you should be careful, especially with a file system MS doesn't recognize.

What about this? Should I be worried?

Update was fine for me. Took like 15 minutes, nothing was added or changed(that I care about) other than Edge icon in taskbar and One Drive reinstalled. Oh, I had to close and re-open RTSS.

MS: That's a nice partition you have there. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it! :devil-smi

 

Thankfully, my other partitions remain unmolested.

Teehee.

I think most of us agree, this is why forced updates are stupid - because bugs are guaranteed.

@Microsoft
And since your programmers clearly need a helping hand, reach out to me, and I will show you how not to be stupid. For a fee.

You have no additional data partitions on the boot drive. Just disconnect Disk 1/2 before update.

It's still good practice to back up critical data in C:, if you have any.

I have 4tb worth of media on an 8tb drive dedicated to plex, i'll be pissed if this accidentally get deleted.

Yep, going to linux when 7 reaches end of life. It's my hardware, only things that I want should run on it. A shame MS seems to think that they own everything.
