Last time we spoke about the Windows 11 Release Preview Channel we presented Build 22000.917 and everything that came with it.

Yesterday, we also presented Build 25182.1010 for Windows 11, which is now live for all Insiders on the Dev Channel.

You should also know that the first major update for Windows 11, version 22H2, is making its way to you as Windows 11 2022.

And, before we get down to business, keep in mind that some of the latest updates for Windows 11 can cause BitLocker issues on your device.

However, now, we are going to take a closer look at Windows 11 build 22621.382, which has now been flighted to the Release Preview Channel.

What is new with Windows 11 Build 22621.382?

As you already heard, Microsoft just released a new Windows 11 update, in the form of KB5016632, to Insiders testing on the Release Preview channel.

Let’s start with the fact that the tech giant enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.

It has also compressed a file regardless of its size if you have configured Server Message Block (SMB) Compression.

Another change is the improved storage replication that occurs over low bandwidth or congested wide area networks (WAN).

Furthermore, you can now view the usage history for the following resources from the Settings page: 

  • Camera 
  • Microphone 
  • Phone Calls 
  • Messaging 
  • Contacts 
  • Screenshots and apps 
  • Music Library 

This is actually a great addition and a feature that Windows 11 users have been requesting for quite some time now.

The rest of the cumulative update’s changelog talks about fixes for various issues, as you are about to see right now:

  • Fixed an issue that causes Windows to display tablet mode features for some devices that do not have touchscreens.
  • Fixed an issue that causes some application windows to have blank sections in the Task View preview.
  • Fixed an issue that occurs for some of you when you copy files from network drives. The error code is 0x80070026.
  • Fixed an issue that might cause the Local Security Authority Server Service (LSASS) to leak tokens. This issue affects devices that have installed Windows updates dated June 14, 2022 or later. This issue occurs when the device performs a specific form of service for user (S4U) in a non-Trusted Computing Base (TCB) Windows service that runs as Network Service.
  • Fixed an issue that, in certain cases, causes sihost.exe to use a high amount of the CPU.

  • Fixed an issue that affects a lookup for a nonexistent security ID (SID) from the local domain using read-only domain controller (RODC). The lookup unexpectedly returns the STATUS_TRUSTED_DOMAIN_FAILURE error instead of STATUS_NONE_MAPPED or STATUS_SOME_MAPPED.
  • Fixed an issue that prevents the Storage Migration Service (SMS) from completing the inventory on servers that have many shares. Error event 2509 appears in Microsoft-Windows-StorageMigrationService/Admin channel (ErrorId=-2146233088/ErrorMessage=”Invalid table id”).
