I meant to say version 1809, 17763.55, not 1803.

OK. :)
I am on 1803 (Build 17134.345), and the last update (10.10) is KB4462919. This was the update I talked about above. I was not offered the 1809 version yet.

If you remove it, you won't be offered it again until the problems are resolved. The October update has been stopped as indicated above, until it has been tested again.

This happened yesterday. If it has been stopped, why it came and installed yesterday so ... suddenly?

So ... better to remove it now?

I have exactly the same problem I had when installing previous cumulative updates:

The update was downloaded, but then failed to be installed, according to my Updates history. But when I go to the Control Panel -> View installed updates, the update is there.

What I did the two previous times: I uninstalled the update from the Control Panel, and the update was installed again successfully, according to the Updates history.

I didn't do the same this time. What do you think?

Some info

Thanks, plodr. I tried many add ons last night. Actually, ant video downloader has the features I want. But ... I can't see it's button to use it.

--> I'm looking for add ons that work with PM. I usually used mp3 from Youtube, rather than mp4 for my job. It's not something I need urgently now, but I would like to have this opportunity.

Thanks, plodr and Frands! I will try them. I prefer to use an add on instead of a program, but I'll see what is best for me.

By the way, what's FFmpeg that I have to download if I use the complete YT saver?

Hi, Frands.

I used the free version of this product some years ago, but then it was related to malware. Also, my antivirus was giving me warnings, so I decided to remove it. Since then, I didn't install any program for this action, as I found those add ons which were very helpful.

I used several Firefox add ons, which helped me to download from Youtube files in different format, e.g. mp4 and mp3. I found that the most functional were two: Download flash and video, and mp3 Youtube podcaster. Unfortunately they don't work anymore. To do my job I started using this page, which has the possibility to convert the Youtube videos to the format you like. Today, I used this page to downoad an mp3. I noticed that it warned me to disable the Ad-blocker, and I did. Many advertisements appeared (you are a winner ..., play this game etc.), but I just entered the video address and proceeded to convert to the mp3, ignoring MBAM warning about a fraud page and for malvertising. 

1. It's obvious that the page is a trap for fraud and malware dowload. But this is related to the advertisements, right?
2. Is there any good alternative to the add ons I mentioned above for downloading from Youtube in mp3 and mp4?

If humans acted like computers.

Frozen task and the role of task manager.  :)



Your goal is to create a new backup that includes the new files since the backup was created in 2017, right?  That being the case, now that you've fixed the size issue, it makes sense to me to go ahead with the new backup.

OK. Got it.

So, now I have to correct the long paths, and then back up again.


It was another interesting thing for learning!  :)

Good find, Panos!  It appears that the issue is caused when file names exceed the path limit of 255 characters. Thus, even if the individual folder names are not over 255 characters long, with sub-folders, that could result in exceeding the file length.  From what I read at the links you provided and at TechNet, those who posted they solved the problem used TLPD.

As I understood it's a diagnostic tool. It finds all the paths that exceed a limit.


I tried the tool. After it found some specific long paths, I removed them from the folder Documents. Problem is solved, as you see in the attachment.

But if there is no risk to loose any of my documents, I prefer to wait for a fix from Microsoft. What do you think?
