    Ah, yeah. Wasn't thinking clearly yet. Coffee this morning was "time release".

    I can't help but wonder, how many hours of sitting at a computer to reach the level of expertise of Shawn Brink?

    My guess would be...at least 10,000 hours, but tons of brains too!!!

    A quick question to Shawn @Brink and anybody else who has a substantiated opinion and would like to share it.

    How similar is an In-place Upgrade with a Windows system upgrade, i.e. the upcoming RS4 (Spring Creators Update)?
    If the reason for the In-Place Upgrade is just for refreshing the Windows 10 installation to resolve minor/non-blocking issues, someone can live with for a while, is it worth doing an In-place Upgrade and not wait for the upcoming System Upgrade?

    Other than the media used and some minor process steps you see, there is no difference. Many of us here do an upgrade Insider via the WU, make an ISO, and use that to update other Insider machines we have. We are very close to final release, and the Media Creation Tool will then be available to download the RS4 in official package. Or you can do the Release Preview trick and then leave Insider. In the end, it's all gonna be the same. Your choice.

    Thanks a lot Dick.
    That's what I thought too...as I have successfully done the In-place Upgrade in the past. But since I'm a member of the best Windows 10 forum, I thought that it would be a good idea to take advantage of the forum's huge expertise and verify it!!

    You're welcome, sir! Others may have input on this also.

    ddelo,
    These are some additional factors to consider:
    Internet data caps,
    Internet speed,
    Registry problems,
    Unexpected problems with new Windows builds,
    Rollback time period
    1) There were reported problems with the recent Windows 10 build upgrade and the release was delayed.
    Once you install the new build either as an upgrade or with an iso there is a limited time period to roll back to the previous build.
    Performing an in place upgrade will allow you to fix operating system problems and settings can be modified to delay the upgrade.
    2) Some internet plans have data caps. The data transmitted for updates is minimal immediately after the iso is released and is maximal just before the next build release. There is typically 6 months of updates between build upgrades. So using an iso can reduce data usage.
    3) Download speed. If the download speed is slow the iso should be quicker than the upgrade.
    4) If there are any registry problems consider a backup using Macrium followed by a clean install.

    Thnx for the advice. As factors 2,3 and 4 do not exist, I would definitely agree on 1. But again, before each upgrade I always make a Macrium full image, thus I do not rely on Microsoft's rollback ability!
