Microsoft has released Windows 10 KB5011487 and Windows 11 KB5011493as part of the March 2022 Patch Tuesday. The patches are made available through different deployment channels such as ConfigMgr (aka WSUS) and Intune (WUfB).
The main highlight of Windows 10 KB5011487 and Windows 11 KB5011493 patches fixed the issue of retaining old profile content in “Windows.old” after resetting the device. Rudy Ooms found this issue a few weeks back.
KB5011487 and KB5011493 address a known issue when you attempt to reset a Windows device, and its apps have folders containing 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. The Windows.old folder might contain the old profile details.
NOTE! – Some devices might take up to seven (7) days after installing this update to fully address the issue and prevent files from persisting after a reset.
