        Just got this report from BM: Just thought I would let you know that the 2004 update was a complete mess for me. It was pushed, I didn’t choose it. I

        I recently updated to 2004, and haven’t had any problems with my Office 2010 files.

        Could you put me in touch with BM?  As no feature update should be removing files.

        are the files actually gone or does the jammed-down-your-throat-at-every-feature-update office365 c2r version of office reset the default file types and default application?

        Hey look! Another Feature Update!

        You mean I shouldn't click Check for Updates?

        Why does it keep saying "Something Happened"?

        Oh my…  I am still running Office 2010 for a while longer on a few machines with 1909-pro.  Just in case… I made sure the GP feature update deferral was set to 365 days on them.  And just in case Windows blows that off, I used Stoppdate10 to set all deferral dates to 2099 until this blows over.

          Sounds to me like the main thing to do would be to make a backup copy of all your Office files before applying the update–like to a USB drive or online or something. I personally use Backblaze, since it just automatically backs up all files for a month by default.

          But I also like to keep a 1:1 backup of my boot partition on my hard drive, so, if my SSD dies, I still can immediately boot back in while I’m waiting for a replacement to ship. So I can also use that backup if something goes wrong. All I have to do is either edit the BIOS or remove the SSD, and I can instantly boot.
