I thoroughly enjoyed one post about the details. I concur to some degree. IS IT the FILES or the C DRIVE or the PROFILE? which is it? I have seen variations back in 2015 and 2016 for the profile and then I did see a full wipe, and it was on an SSD drive, and then an m.2 ssd... and all related to windows wifi versus hard wired, and not on a domain.. just a standalone...
One of my good friends, won't mention his name, works in software test at Microsoft for nearly 25 years and still with 30-40,000 bugs created per month, I wonder when will Microsoft implode on itself? Or will it ever?
here is the slash details I enjoyed.
