    @Vasudev: does that new tool run full systems image backups (including data + applications) ? :unsure:

    Please reflect Your changes editing Your config, thanks :giggle:
    Its only temporary because MR Free has a problem with taking a snapshot of windows 10 metadata info and MR exe has a fix but at the moment I'm not seeing any updates for HBCD PE, so I went Lazesoft. I'll add it to main post. Thanks.

    Dx9/10/11 and older games not exiting cleanly or getting stuck at blackscreen unless the system is forced shutdown, is fixed on 18362.1 build of 19H1.

    Thread updated;
    Added:

    WD 4.18.1905.1 on all PCs.
    Gtranslate for FF


    Removed:

    KSC Free 2019 because it removed my custom scripts during in-place OS upgrade using an ISO. KSC settings reverted to defaults and deleted all my scripts and other scripts from chef koch's regtweaks repo.

    "KSC reverted..." or probably was due to the new OS upgrade? :unsure: :emoji_thinking: KSC settings may be exported for these cases, and the imported... also during my W10 1903 upgrading via Windows10Upgrade9252.exe I stopped K protection, anyway my Ks in 7 systems kept my settings them all, I had any issue...

    I upgraded from 1803 to v1809 and was on latest update. Problem is, Post setup scripts which I added were deleted w/o user consent when I unchecked auto deletion. I paused KSC until restart. I'll try export settings and pause KSC permanently on my sis's PC and report back.
