4GB of Creators files have disappeared!

Recommended Posts

Last week I finally got the chance to download the Creators upgrade 1703. As I have very slow Wi-Fi here I went to our site office and sat there for over 4 hours while the files uploaded.
 
As I've heard so many horror stories of laptops not working after upgrading to 1703 I delayed installing 1703 for 5 days until I had completed some important work and backed up.
 
But now the upgrade option for 1703 no longer appears when I go to shut off my laptop, and - somewhat worryingly - there seems to be no way I can run it from Settings. The downloaded files of 4GB must be somewhere on my hard disk ... but where?
 
I am now getting requests to download and install the October Cumulative upgrade for 1607. If I go ahead will I invalidate the 4GB of Creator files I downloaded?
 
Help!

Instead of that, you could simply download the ISO and do a clean install.

To be honest, Microsoft is themselves not sure what they want to do. I had a horrible experience with windows 10 v1709 and reverted back to 1703.

Thanks for your feedback awaixjvd,

Having spent a boring 4.5 hours in our site office (i couldn't walk away leaving my laptop unmonitored) downloading the files I'm really trying to avoid going there again!

Just hoping someone else has had this problem and found a way out. Otherwise I will just stick with v1607. ?

      I have a toshiba A135 that was working without issues until a 1703 update came.  The pc crashed and opened with device manager with numerous errors on the drivers.  So, I rolled it back to the previous W10 and it worked again.  Then, it updated the newer W10 and it crashed again.  Help.
