Windows 10 Fall Update turns data collection back on

Just a word of warning for privacy-conscious readers, if you used third-party software to disable Windows 10 data collection features you will need to perform a reapplication after installing the Windows 10 Fall Update. This is because the November update is essentially a refresh of the operating system, and reverts many settings back to the default state:
While some are accusing Microsoft of using the update to deliberately turn the data tracking settings of Windows 10 back on, it makes sense that what effectively amounts to a fresh Windows install would return some settings to their default.

“The November (Fall) Update literally reinstalls the entire operating system, which is why program defaults and a lot more end up reverting and disabled things may come back. I honestly hope they improve this upgrade system for the next big update because this has seriously caused a lot of people some trouble,” posted Puremin0rez.
