Windows 7: Will the W10 reserve over-ride my WU 7 settings

Will the W10 reserve over-ride my WU 7 settings

I have reserved W10 but now I am having second thoughts. In the GW10 icon info list it states that W10 will be automatically downloaded and I can chose when I want to install it. Reading posts on the W10 forum, it says that the update will be delivered via windows update.

I have my W7 windows updates set to DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOAD. I do not want any windows updates installed automatically. I am concerned that my W7 settings will be ignored by the W10 reserve download. Is this a valid concern?

I would like to have W10 but there is no way I can manage 3-4GB download at some random time during the month. I only have a 5GB max. data plan. ISPs charge $15/MB if you go over the plan max. so that would be a massive overcharge for me.

It would not be a concern if my W7 settings are respected. W7 WU allows you to delay the download but not the install, so this W10 statement is not in keeping with that.

Hello Painter, and Welcome to Seven Forums.

It'll abide by your Windows Update settings.

Thank you Brink. It would help if it came down as an optional update (not selected - until selected).

I really wish they would change the wording to 'once you confirm that you want W10, the windows update service makes your copy available to you so you can select it for download when you are ready to install it'.

I think that is what they meant to say.

That would certainly make it more clear to help avoid confusion.
