I had that on Fresh install as well.... only once it was done installing 11, it ask me if I want to Keep my programs and files.

I went nope cause I wanted a fresh install for a reason.

It did move all my Old stuff (Windows/Users) into c:\Windows.old folder so still ended up using Disc clean-up utility to get rid of it.

Im confused? ... a fresh install usually means formatting the drive?

Exactly.

I ran set-up from within Windows cause I wanted to keep my Pro licence and not the laptop's Single User OEM, and it only had Keep-nothing enabled and ticked, which is what I wanted. So after the install and the initial set-up that ask for Keyboard and such also asked me if I wanted to keep my files and programs.

Remember clearly going "WTF is this s..." and clicked on NOTHING. After the install was done, I had a Windows and Windows.old folder that I know from past experience needs Disc Clean-up tool to get rid of.

So, update manually or wait to be prompted?

What's the consensus?

PS too lazy to do a clean install though
