Microsoft is preparing to release the next major update for Windows 10 soon, while it is said that the 12th of this month is expected to launch the update for all users around the world As you know, these updates tend to provide Windows 10 with more new features and many bug fixes, as well as a number of security improvements. However, the November 2019 update is the smallest major update of its kind in the history of Windows 10, as it doesn't come with much of the features. But that doesn't mean it's error free.
We do not install major updates as soon as they arrive, but wait a bit and take some steps in preparation to receive them and avoid any problems, let us disclose them to you.

1. Delay automatic updates

Although it comes to fix the flaws and problems in the operating system, major updates for Windows 10 can cause major and sometimes catastrophic problems, so it is always recommended to delay automatic updates in the system to avoid installing updates as they become available. So you have the opportunity to wait and see if the update is safe, does not affect stability and is experiencing problems. Simply go to Settings, then to the Update & Security section, click on Advanced Options and from the Pause updates menu, select how long you want to delay updates; it's best to wait a week from the day the update was launched.

2. Activate full diagnostic data

In Windows 10, there is an option in the settings that allows you to control the automatically sent diagnostic data to Microsoft which is used to help maintain the security and stability of the operating system and fix related problems, and you can learn more details through the official Microsoft website. In any case, it would be helpful to adjust the settings of this option to send full diagnostic data, not partial, after installing the new major update on your device. This allows Microsoft to handle errors and problems caused by this update faster. To do so, go to Settings, then to the Privacy section, then from the Diagnostics & feedback page on the left side select the option "Full" instead of "Basic" and then restart your computer.

3. Save a backup copy of the files

Often, installing Windows 10 Home Updates does not delete any data from the volume. However, as a precaution, it is recommended that you back up your important files before installing the update. You can do this in more ways than one: either manually copy your files to external storage, use the built-in Windows 10 tools, or transfer files to cloud storage services like Onedrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox. Whichever method is used, be sure to back up your files before making a big move like installing major OS updates, so it's easy to recover your data later if something goes wrong.

What if the update causes problems on my device?

If you are quick to experience new features and install the November 2019 update as soon as it arrives on your device, then you will experience some problems and errors during the daily handling of the device. Fortunately, Windows 10 allows users to revert to the previous version 10 days after the update is installed. So, if you have problems with the update, all you have to do is go to the Update & Security section of the Settings app and then go to the Recovery page from the side menu and press the Get started button under the partial back. Turn on the computer, the device will work with the old version and you can continue that for some time until Microsoft addresses the problems discovered in the latest update.
