  • Win10 version 2004 gets “optional” fixes for many problems – but OneDrive still suffers

    The “optional, non-security, C/D Week” patch for Win10 version 2004, KB 4568831, claims to cure many of the ills that afflict the latest version of Windows. Mayank Parmar has an overview in Windows Latest:

    Microsoft has finally published an optional update to address at least four major bugs in Windows 10 version 2004, including Storage Spaces file corruption issue where the disk-failure protection feature is broken. (That’s the Parity Space bug I talked about on June 18 -WL.)

    While the problem with Drive Optimize tool remains unpatched and unacknowledged, Microsoft says it has included fixes for problems affecting Storage Spaces… This patch also allows Windows built-in data protection software to work as intended.

    I’m skeptical that the optional update actually fixes all of those problems, but stranger things have happened.

    In addition, Günter Born says he’s found evidence of yet another long-standing Win10 bug:

    After upgrading to the next build, OneDrive fails and delivers ‘OneDrive cannot connect to Windows’. There can also be printer problems.

    He reports on a German blog reader, Martin, who has both a description and a solution of the bug that only occurs when you do an in place upgrade.
