Microsoft Releases Brand New Update for Windows 10
Windows 10 Technical Preview won't get any new build until January 2015, but this doesn't necessarily mean that Microsoft stopped fixing bugs and performance issues in the existing builds.In fact, thats exactly what Redmond is trying to do right now, in an attempt to improve the overall experience you get when you install Windows 10 build 9879.
This time, Microsoft has released a patch for a common explorer.exe bug that causes the app to crash all of a sudden and which the company confirmed one week ago.
The software giant has announced, through the voice of Windows Insider boss Gabriel Aul, that Windows 10 build 9879 users could now download this new build from Windows Update and everyone is recommended to do so even if the bug doesnt seem to exist on their computers.
Two bugs at the core of the issueGabriel Aul explains in a post that this explorer.exe crash occurs because of 2 different problems, one of which is related to new system compression code available in build 9879. “In some cases the logic for low-space detection gets inverted, and we compress automatically as a background operation,” Aul says.
In addition, there is a second issue on PCs with system compression enabled, as a bug found in the way filesystem tracks deletes “caused the installer to think that the temp files failed to extract correctly, so the installer fails because it thinks it cannot complete.”
