    Hi there –

    Greetings to All,

    What does one do with a Windows 10 Insider Preview major update, being half way thru’ downloading or installing when there is suddenly a power loss? Living in Thailand this happens during the rainy season, and can last minutes or even hours.

    My question: After return of power, should one simply continue with the now second download/installation or go back to a perfect previous full-disk backup and start all over again?

    Grateful for any advice and or suggestions in advance!

    The situation suggests the download/install may be corrupted so the full-disk restore would be the way I'd go.

    Sorry for the typo!
    I thought that much, thanks for the confirmation.
    I will start all over again using the full-disk backup!
