Hello -- Thanks for your reply but that was not my question  --- 

It seems that there is a bug with the 1903 update if its saved on a usb drive --- 

The bug in the update is that the update, might/could change the assigned letter to the drive to a new letter 

so,  again, if the usb drive was not  "mounted" as a letter, but  as a  directory link, would that work?

This is all very bazaar, since this issue has been published and a fix is in the works 

This is what I did — 

I downloaded the “media creation tool” for win 10 build 1903 

and created the windows 10 update 1903 to a usb drive (an ISO image is an option too) 

Then executed the “setup.exe” on the created usb drive. 

After a few minutes, the update stop with an error , with the error that the 1903 update can change the drive letter of any USB connected devices, so it could be possible that a usb drive connected as “G:” could become “E:” after the update – and the 1903 update is on a usb drive 

So, the question is if the usb was accessed as a directory link, would that work?
