Windows 11 KB5011493 (22000.556) update brings multiple fixes

Windows 11 is improving itself day by day. As we all know, every Tuesday, Microsoft releases patches for its Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems every Tuesday. Now, these patches not only bring in new features but also bring in various fixes that help improve the functioning of Windows 11. Microsoft has just released another security patch, a second one for this month, in the form of a Windows 11 KB5011493 (22000.556) update.  

This new patch goes by the name KB5011493 for the OS Build version of 22000.556. The update will gradually be available to all Windows 11 systems. While we know that there’s a new update, let’s take a look at what all the update brings and takes care of. The patch released today is just security updates to improve the overall security of the Windows operating system.

Here is what the changelog talks about

  • Addresses a known issue that occurs when you attempt to reset a Windows device and its apps have folders that contain reparse data, such as Microsoft OneDrive or Microsoft OneDrive for Business. When you select Remove everything, files that have been downloaded or synced locally from Microsoft OneDrive might not be deleted.

Looking at the changelog, we see that the update now fixes the issue f data still available on your device even after performing a reset. This can be a problem for many people who might simply want to sell or donate their Windows 11 systems because the remove everything option simply isn’t removing everything. It’s a step in the right direction that Microsoft has taken to address this issue.
