The number of reported issues associated with the Anniversary Update is quite large, but there are simply some things that bother users that can’t be characterized as actual issues. Just like users reported that the Anniversary Update deleted their system restore points, we now see some complaints about how the second major update for Windows 10 removes complete Update History from the system.
We have to say that that isn’t an issue at all: it’s just how major updates for Windows 10, including the Anniversary Update, work. So, when the new version of Windows 10 is installed, all records about updates for previous versions are deleted.
Windows 10 will continue to keep track of the future updates for Windows 10 version 1607, but that’s going to last only until the next major update for the system. Once the new major update (AKA Redstone 2) is released, all Update History files from the Anniversary Update (Redstone 1) will be deleted.
If you really want to see the update history of your Windows 10 device even after the new major update is released, Microsoft has you covered: the company launched a new website earlier this year called Windows 10 Update History.
All previously released update for every Windows 10 version so far are listed on this site. So, if you want to find more information about any update since Windows 10’s release until now, you just need to check the site and you’ll find what you’re looking for.
We hope we helped you better understand why Microsoft deletes Windows 10 Update History with each major update. In case there’s something else you would like to know about the Anniversary Update, just let us know in the comments.
