I have a script that installs things using the built in chocolatey.org support in Windows 10.

As it turns out, the built in support doesn't work properly for a lot of programs at the moment.
(Gonna adjust the script to try using the built in support to install Chocolatey itself, then use choco.exe instead)

it's kind of weird what settings got left, what settings didn't get maintained, and after a file copy, what got partially maintained but not properly

ATTENTION, Public Service Announcement: Do not upgrade your npm. Do not upgrade to 5.7.0, released yesterday.

It changes file permissions of /etc, /boot, /user, … when run with sudo. Avoid, duck, cover, whimper.

by the time I get home, my desktop boot drive should have finished robocopy-ing to my external drive.

I have not yet decided whether to try a refresh or to just wipe it.
As I saw the file names and folders flash by (for the parts I was there/awake for), I saw a whole bunch of accumulated junk - the mentions of Toshiba meaning that the Windows install on here originally belonged to an old (2009 at least, possibly older) laptop before that HDD was moved to my desktop, then cloned to a SSD.
