    Windows 10 update confusion.


    Hi, Just what the heck are Microsoft playing at?
    Numerous references to Windows 10 Pro Update Failed in Action Centre and yet the folder named $Windows~BT appeared in 'C' Drive and on the 29th gradually built-up to 3.86Gb. At this point it appears to have stuck with no further increase having occurred to date - namely 1100 hrs 31st July. I had removed and replaced my 3rd party A/V with Defender in W8.1 Pro on the 28th July.
    Unlike normal updates there is no visible knowledge of updates taking place. However once again a number of W10 Failed notices in Action Centre on the 31st July but no increment to the $Windows~BT Folder
    Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on please?

    Thank you.
    Yorky.
