Taking a guess, 2GB are reserved for an integrated video card. The size may or may not be adjustable in a BIOS/UEFI setting.

KB article: "You do not have to restart your device after you apply this update."

WU: "Restart your PC to finish installing updates"

On two different server installations (I've installed it on so far). This is the only update I applied. <sigh />

I've used CCleaner to fix botched Windows feature updates. Because who needs testers? I also go for the standalone file rather than the installer.

For what it's worth, ESET also detects the installer as a potentially unsafe application (Win32/CCleaner), so, about time Microsoft, and thanks for the reminder on why I run NOD32.

Yay, new toothbrush today!

(Change your toothbrush every 3 months... so for us, when the season changes...)

I want users to uninstall Flash Player a couple of years ago.

In theory, that file shouldn't be running.

Is that Opera helper still running? If so, let's see if we can figure out where it's at. While it's running, see if you can open Task Manager (click Start and type Task Manager to find it). Then go to the Details tab. Then look through there to see if you can find something running that's using the same Opera icon as you see on the taskbar. If you find something, right-click it and select Properties, and that will tell you the filename and its location. The location may actually go beyond what's shown there, but if you right-click it and then click Select All, then you can right-click it again and select Copy to copy the full location out of there.

What's the EXE's file name?

Is this the same version that added COVID19 to the choosable list? I am on 7.6.13 but I got it weeks ago. Should I re-install it?
Not sure when they added that to the list (I didn't even know it was there). But if you're on 7.6.13, that I do believe is the current one, and no need to reinstall.

Its called getting  all the info needed and for your info..all opinions count

On our end it is called unnecessary duplication of effort.

Thread ends.

And 3,000 :)

If you haven't pulled client version 7.6.13 in the last week or so (it's fairly new), it seems that the retry timers are more aggressive, meaning if you don't get a work assignment, it doesn't wait quite as long to try again. Some of those wait times were getting really long, but now I'm finding the majority of times I check, I have work assignments across the board, rather than some of them sitting in ready.


how do you stop the system restore on sdcard?
Did you read the article???

If you try its suggestions, I won't be able to assist if something goes wrong. No warranty, etc. etc.


I formatted the sd micro card and that sysytem file wont go away?? oh well

It didn't go away, or it was newly re-created?
Newly re-created. By design. The article I linked to provides details on what it's for.

Can format the card in the drone, but once the card is back on the Windows box, System Volume Information will be created and indexing information, among other possible things, will be written in it. In theory, this folder shouldn't be taking up that much relative space.

Does the Win10 email app store the emails on your hard drive? [...] I'm thinking I don't want that to happen.  I don't need to be storing spam on my hard drive!
Yes, emails are stored local so you can access them when offline. But.... I believe you can say only have email from the last X months/weeks/days. In other words, you keep a timeframe-worth of email locally; the rest just sit on the server.

Generally emails are pretty small in size, especially in comparison to other files, so 'in theory' this shouldn't take a lot of space. Says a person with a 7-gigabyte local copy of his email via the full Outlook desktop app, but this goes back to 2013. I prefer everything be local versus only keeping a recent timeframe worth local. If I kept only the last 3 months, it'd be much smaller. And I would suspect Outlook has some 'features' that make the file bigger than what some other programs would have for a local copy.

I also couldn't find out if the default connection the mail app uses is POP3 or IMAP.
I'm going to take an educated guess, based on clicking the add a Yahoo! account option in the Mail app - it's looking like it connects directly to the Yahoo! service similar to how adding a GMail account would work, so it may not be either POP3 or IMAP but rather Yahoo!'s interface. Based on that, I would expect the experience to follow an IMAP-like method where your email is not pulled from the server, stored locally, and then deleted from the server like a typical POP3 experience, if that's a concern.
