Windows 10 Build 16275 – The Biggest Gripes, Problems, and Errors


The Creators Update is almost here, but before its launch Windows decided to offer us a new build for Windows 10 Insider Preview. Build 16275 is here and so far it didn’t bring anything good. Various users complained on Microsoft forums and according to them, this new build has many issues. Moreover, the build was supposed to bring some minor tweaks, but apparently, users haven’t discovered any differences between this one and the previous one.

We listed here all the problems encountered after the installation of Windows 10 Preview build 16275. Take a look to see if you have any of these issues.

Deleted files

This is probably the biggest issue for any user. So far, one user reported that he encountered this problem and hopefully there won’t be more. According to him, after the installation, all his personal folders were gone. He lost pictures, documents, movies and music. And he also discovered that his Microsoft Edge settings weren’t there anymore. Luckily, there was a solution for this issue. The files were a moved to another location, so if you have the same problem you just need to go to “C:Usersyour user name” and you will find everything there.

Some users are unable to install the new build

Many users reported that they can’t install build 16275. No matter how many times they tried, the installation ended up with the same error. Some users tried to disable the antivirus or use the DISM command, but nothing worked. No solution was found for this error so far.

Microsoft Edge crashing issue

One user reported that trying to open Edge didn’t work and he received the following message: This app can’t open. A problem with Windows is preventing Microsoft Edge from opening. Refreshing your PC might help fix it.” However, refreshing the PC didn’t work and it led to the same error.
