      There’s also a new Preview Cumulative Update for .NET 3.5 and 4.8, for Win10 version 2004. KB 4570721.

      I’m downloading it to see if they actually fixed on the most annoying bugs, to me, in Windows 10. The most annoying was when my SD card had the data wiped and the drive letter changed. I really hope the reshuffling of the deck chairs at Microsoft gives us an improved update experience. I can’t complain too much as botched Windows 10 updates brought my shop an increased amount of business this year. Tough call. Complain, or say thanks. Schrodingers update.

        Well, that was weird. Both the Windows update KB4571744, nor the standalone version from MS Update Catalog failed to install. On to patch Tuesday, I guess, to see if the “Never optimized” issue is actually fixed.


        • #2293804

          I didn’t see the typo. But both Windows Update and standalone FAILED to install. Nice “fix” you have there MS>

      the official release of KB4571744 is build 19041.488, not 19041.487

      includes at least some sort of defrag/optimization fix…at least it should now remember its previous defrag status (KB4571744 just patched the defragproxy.dll, defragres.dll & defragsvc.dll files but not the defrag.exe & dfrgui.exe files)

        From erpster4 on Tenforums:

        MS patched the defragproxy.dlldefragres.dll & defragsvc.dll files with the .487 & .488 builds [official KB4571744 update from WU & MUC has .488] as I checked the updated DLL files myself (from the Windows\System32 folder) after being updated with KB4571744. the defrag.exe & dfrgui.exe files, however, remain untouched and still at build 19041.84

      Downloaded and installed, with no apparent ill effects as yet.  When a disk is optimised or analysed now, defrag seems to be remembering the last date & time when it was done.

      Weird, I just checked an only saw the NET 3.5 and 4.8 update.  My system updated to 2004 as my 90 day hold on this version expired the other day.  I’ve been running 2004 without any issues.  I’ll check again tomorrow to see it the update mentioned shows up as the fix for the drive defrag is important to me.  I’m on OS build 19041.450.

        They added (not sure when) a link to View Optional Updates – that’s where this update is now.  It’s a nice change – they used to just blast onto your PC the moment you hit “Check for updates.”

      I didn’t use Windows Update.  I downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

      a follow up on my previous comment – the KB4571744 update officially released Sept. 3 has v10.0.19041.488 of the defragproxy.dll, defragres.dll & defragsvc.dll files instead of build 19041.487 as I checked these updated DLL files myself from the \Windows\System32\ folder.

        So the second monthly Cumulative Update has even newer versions than the version 20H2 files?

    • #2293682

      The late timing of this E(?) week update makes it pretty much useless, might as well wait few days for patch Tuesday. I wonder if this is record for Microsoft to cut it this close?

      Also, this update mysteriously appeared and then disappeared from my Windows Update, after I selected it to be installed. So I guess I’ll just ignore this update anyway.

    • #2293721

      Why is such large number of fixes optional? Will they make it mandatory after betatesting amongst the public? Anyone?

      There’s an odd update sequence. From Scramjet on Tenforums:

      Checked for updates and none. Then clicked on optional updates and checked the box and download and install. Seems nothing happened. Closed update and went into settings again and checked “About” and no change. Seemed like nothing happened. Went and got my morning coffee and then came back and when i clicked on “Start” I noticed a yellow mark in “Power” icon. Selected the option update and restart.. Showed update status on screen and restarted. Clicked on settings again and went into “Update” again and noticed a KB4570721 was there and required a restart again. Done that and now have both KB4570721 and KB4571744 showing as installed in history. “About” shows 19041.488.

      Such a weird update lol

      Personally, I see “View optional updates” and, when I click on the link, there are no updates listed.

      Microsoft’s having a heck of a time getting optional update working right. But at least they aren’t dangling this update out where somebody could accidentally or unknowingly click on it.

      Having installed this supposed FIX for the defrag issue, the patch still has issues where. It will as advertised show the correct date & time for the run. Looking in the system event logs there is an error where, defrag reports that re-trim couldn’t be performed. I do NOT have an SSD installed on this system, just one 2 TB SATA III. Reported same to MS through the feedback hub as well. Screenshot attached for those interested.
