Since downloading Win10, now on  This PC appears a System F file which cannot be opened nor nothing happens under properties.  My Anniversay Update is p;ostp;oned until the latest time possible.  Could this file be holding the download awaiting installation?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 The F "drive" is often created as a side-effect of MS downloading the files it needs for a major Update. And yes, that drive could be holding some of the update files -- but generally, they are stored in the "C" drive, not in a separate drive.

 

However, the tech sites are reporting more failures than successes with the Anniversary Update, to you are doing the right thing to delay it.

I waited until last week of availability to download Win10 which went pretty much well.  Since then I have discovered that 2 (automatic) updates have been downloaded without incident, but another one requires a reboot.  With all the news of disruptions (perhaps for the early downloaders of W10?) I took option to delay the restart & installation to the last date allowed - it then is done automatically if not requested.  This happen tomorrow at 3.30 am!  

 

I thank you for your helpful answer and tomorrow no doubt will provide me with the confirmation, or perhaps a black screen!
