Quote:
The Redmond company confirmed the issue and noted that impacted users have created a large number of restore points, a move which cause the slowing down of the startup process.


According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

Microsoft did not explain just how slow the startup process gets, but it appears that boot performance degradation is sufficient for users to become aware that something it’s going on.

“This issue occurs because the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature exceeds the size limit of 512 kilobytes (KB). Each restore point creates a snapshot of Windows that Volsnap.sys must validate during the startup process,” Microsoft explained.

“When you create many restore points, the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature eventually exceeds the size limit of 512 KB, and cannot be stored. Therefore, startup I/O operations are not precached, and the startup process is slow.
my update went ok all done in 5 mins
