Can I leapfrog the April 2018 W10 update?

  Aitchbee 11:00 05 Sep 2018

I've got a medion tablet and medion notebook [both fairly new] which haven't been used for over 6 months. Will I be able to install the next impending big update without the need to download then install the last April one first? Hard disk space is at a premium.

As these are reportedly cumulative updates I think you should be able to do it.

You may as well wait for the October 2018 update now. It will detect your system state, and should install anything it needs before it installs the new update files.

Without going on-line, I would make as much space as you can, by removing anything unneeded and moving as many files as you can to a backup drive

Thanks all.

btw, I downloaded the last big update, about a year ago, via an ethernet cable as an iso image, using another computer then used an external usb dvd drive to update my tablet via a DVD disk. Will use that method again when the time comes in October.

Any further suggestions are most welcome.

Yes it will work as before.

Thanks Govan1x for that; but the main reason I'm waiting for the next 'big one' is to avoid such never-ending patches, so I'll just wait for the next version update due out in October.

Don't bother there will be another, 6 months down the line. It's a never ending story

Not sure if anything there for you or not.
