      Not that I had any upgrade issue upgrading from Win 10 with my current desktop computer, but I have a few suggestions to keep in mind. The first two suggestions are to make certain that your computer meets the minimum hardware standards and that your HDD/SDD has sufficient storage space. Microsoft has a tool/PC application that scans your computer thoroughly to check current specifications and compatibility.

      Back up your current storage before attempting to update. When I updated my system, everything worked perfectly and I had a clean install with no loss of data/files. When I upgraded it merely installed over my existing storage and I did not need to re-install any files myself, it took care of it on its own.

      Remember that not everyone will be successful the first time but always take precautions to minimize any potential problems. If you have persistent issues with the install you can go with the “nuclear option” which will wipe out your HDD/SDD contents and do a clean install as if it was a brand-new computer

      Best wishes.

      Do you mean the upgrade from Windows 10 (or maybe 7 or 8?) to Windows 11, or the regular monthy updates of Windows 11, or the app updates that happen whenever it suits Microsoft?

      The answer to your question depends on your question. My colleague birdmantd told about the first,

      We haven’t seen any real problems. Mind you I take it you are asking about a PC with Windows 11 that is getting updates and not about Windows 7,8 or 10 upgrades to 11.
