Prepare your pc for Windows 10 April 2018 Update with these 5 tips

The time to get your computer ready for Microsoft’s next big update to Windows 10 has arrived. With these tips your computer will be ready for this update.

Microsoft is releasing his new version of his operating system for PC, known as Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. This update will became officially available for download on April 30 and this update will be for free to download to all current Windows 10 users. Now, we are going to teach you how to prepare your PC for this imminent update.

1. Backup your files

It is a good practice that when you’re going to install any big update you backup your files and data. This is that in case something goes wrong you won’t lose data. You can use your preferred cloud backup service and upload all of your pictures, videos and important files. You can even use an external hard drive. You can also use the Windows built-in backup service. You can find it by going to Settings > Update & security > Backup.

2. Backup your full system

You can create a system image of your PC, just to be sure everything is going to be just fine. This kind of backup will save your settings and apps in addition to your photos, videos and important files.

3. Free up space on your PC

When you try to do a major update to your PC, you need to free up some gigabytes of drive space. Clean your un-used files so you can have sufficient space to install the Creators Update.

4. Disconnect every peripheral you don’t need

It is recommended you disconnect from your PC any peripheral you don’t need before updating. The only thing you should have connected to your PC is only a mouse and keyboard. No printer, scanner or any external hard drive. When you have other peripheral connected to your PC Windows Creators Update will try to locate the drivers for those peripheral and for any reasons it could create a failing and just to be sure it is recommended to disconnect them.

5. Temporary disable any security software

Antivirus and firewalls can create failings or can slow down your installation update. You can either remove or disable and remember to enable it or reinstalling when the update is ready.
