    Same problem. I got a little hot-headed and installed Windows Insider before reading the change log. What I didn't know was that it auto-downloaded the update, and is now threatening to update automatically on April 15th. Does anyone know how to delete the update files before it auto-installs?

    Untick the box under "phone update" that says: "Automatically download updates if data settings allow it"
    I've always done this when I get the install update now pop-up.

    Anyone else found a way to circumvent this before April 15th :(

    EDIT: I understand I can hard reset now or use the tool Microsoft provides to rollback after TP10 is installed, but both ways means I lose my WhatsApp chats as I have no external SD. I also lose 6snap :'( which at least I can view stories atm. Is there a way to deleting or corrupting the download files? I tried setting the calendar a year back but the drawback is my schedule is now really messed up

    That'll have to be my last resort, but that means I'll lose a lot of things that don't get backed up by the settings, like whatsapp chats etc (no external SD). Anyone know a way that wont erase everything? Also, does anyone know why I can't back up App+Settings manually? it gets to 95% and tells me there was an error

    Seriously, what's the big deal? Wipe your phone... There are more important things in life than a WhatsApp chat log.

    If your phone data was that important to you, you had no business playing with the insider program in the first place.

    If you enrolled in Insider did you read any of the advice before activating it?

    Microsoft said it. All the blogs said it. Users who tried said it.

    Don't rush in. Don't use your primary. Do be ready to lose data. Do know how to restore and revert.

    This. Is. Not. New.

    That's true, but I kinda half expected those on Update 2 would be on a "slow-ring" and those on W10TP at the moment the "fast ring".

    It's the same general panic we saw when the first round of Insider rolled out, but magnified.

    The funny thing is, I suspect that even those who are only curious and are risking their primary are all hitting Fast because, you know, "cool."

    FYI, if one has a phone with a microSD card then WhatsApp chat logs can be backed-up and restored, just saying.

    Remove your old backups first before creating a new one. It fixed mine but that was long ago. Try it and see if this trick still works.

    I'm curious, risked my primary primary phone and hit Fast ring not because of being "cool" but because I was curious. I want to know what is new, how it looks, how it works, first hand, not from videos, comments or blogs. I want Windows 10 to be better (it's good already), and when it comes out officially, I don't want to be like a cry baby complaining why it looks like this, why it works like that, so here I am, rushing to get these updates and provide my feedbacks. I'm aware that my feedbacks won't all be applied to the final build but at least I did try and voice out my opinions.

    P.S. That's just for me. I don't know about others. Maybe they really want to be "cool".

    PS2 I'm now reverting to 8.1 as I can't use it fast enough as it was installed on my primary phone. To others, good luck!

    Well I am not sure what all the fuss is about.
    Everyone was well informed that the Technical Preview is not for the faint at heart.

    However I don't think it auto installs without your permission. You phone will prompt you whether you want to install now and if you select "not now", it wont install.

    The problem is we over react to everything. Stay calm and just press "Not now".

    This is what I did and it works perfectly(with minor bugs) for me on my L1020
    1) Backed up everything on my phone (on WP8.1)
    2) Hard reset my phone
    3) After hard reset, did not restore from any back up.Set up as a new phone.
    4) Download Windows Insider and signed up for fast ring.
    5) Updated phone to 8.1 GDR 2
    6) Then updated to WP 10 TP
    7) Then hard reset my phone
    8) Now, I installed all the apps I needed.

    Phone works well with some minor bugs.

    Some tips :
    1) Camera
    Microsoft camera does not work. So download Lumia Camera. It works perfectly. Alternatively, you can use proshot camera.

    2) Pictures
    You might find that recently captured pictures are missing. Do not panic. Use the File Explorer that is included in the installed apps and go to pictures folder. You will find all the pictures there.

    3) Wifi/Mobile Data
    Wifi and mobile data works after a hard reset. So ensure you hard reset after you install WP 10 TP.

    Hope all these helps.

    If I use Storage Cleaner (originally intended to remove "other" storage space) to fill my phone with temporary files so that I have very little storage left, anyone think that it might prevent the installation from occurring due to low storage space?
    As for looking "cool", that was not my original intention. I do intend to be a part of TP10 and provide feedback as this is my favorite OS after using iOS and android, but I am not ready until May comes along (this is a bad time). I did not know that it would force an installation upon signing up, but I guess that's what I get for being too hot-headed.

    Type in (dial pad) ##777# & read the disclaimer, it just might save your data (or not).

    That's the best comment of the century. Forced to upgrade. No OS or phone forces anyone to upgrade.

    We humans have to press the "Upgrade now" or "Install" button. We make the decision.

    Lol. Thanks for making my day by making me laugh like crazy.

    You can only not install it and ignore the message. I had a similar issue with my Lumia 810 and PfD and Windows 8.1 -once that message is in the pipeline you can only install it to get rid of the notice. You're SOL otherwise...or install it and the revert to 8.1 again. BTW after I got an 830 with 8.1 I installed it on my 810 and have it as a back-up phone...still with the crappy Nokia Camera of old tho' -green hue with no solution.

    It is not automatic. You registered a developer account, installed an app, enrolled your phone to receive alpha-software and it is doing exactly what you manually chose for it to do. :P

    The only way to stop the update is to reset your phone. I installed Update 2 and then performed a full reset, Update 2 stays but the phone doesn't pick up any new updates :)
    I had to do the same on my wife's 1520 also uninstalled the insider app

    I wasn't even whining or complaining that it was Microsoft's fault. I already admitted that I made an impulsive decision to sign up when I should have waited until May. Im just seeing if there is any way around it, if not no big deal ill just install TP10 and then restore to WP8.1 and wait until May before joining again. What I was referring to "force" was the fact that it will automatically install on April 15th regardless of me hitting "not now" (obviously its not actually "force" because I signed up). Im not sure why you feel the need to make a condescending comment when I wasn't even rude about it.
