Microsoft Windows 10 feature (version) updates

Prior to the release of Microsoft feature updates, For The Record (FTR) tests any impacts of the respective update using a Microsoft preview build with our FTR software.

If an issue is found, we provide advice and when required, a patch and/or a FTR version update is developed, to minimize any issues and downtime once you upgrade.

This is part of our commitment to providing customers with recording and playback confidence.
