I took delivery of my new ThinkStation (P330) on Friday Sept 6.
I've installed a few things on it so far, but not started the process of copying over all my data from my old Lenovo PC or installing all other software yet.
Should I proceed with the Windows 10 1903 update that is available when I run Windows Update -> Check for Updates? Or leave it for now?
If the answer is to update now, do I need to create a restore point? And if so how?
Sorry for the dumb question, but I'm new to Windows 10.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You are going to have to upgrade to 1903 at some point, so there is no time like the present.
I would recommend that you first update all the device drivers etc. for your system using Lenovo System Update, because that will ensure that any drivers needed for 1903 compatibility are in place before the upgrade.

Thanks, I'd already run all updates via the Lenovo program. I'll run them again before performing this update, but do I need to create a restore point or anything like that before running the OS update? And if so, how do I do it in Windows 10?

I would strongly recommend creating your own restore points even though windows does so also.
There is no harm in doing so only benefits.
just search for create restore point. There are a few entry points into this process e.g control panel, system, system protection

Can you point me in the right direction for how to do this in Windows 10?
I just don't want to mess up in any way of form.
I held off updating the OS on my old Windows 8.1 desktop because of the issues colleagues had doing the same on their systems. So only wanted to switch to Windows 10 on a fresh system, and lo and behold an OS update is due...

I amended my original response. It’s straight forward. Once launched, In the window ensure the c drive protection is set to on. Highlight the c drive line and select configure and ensure there is space provided using the slider then select create provide a description. That’s it.
You may want to protect other drives however consider if their contents and therefore if required. Hope this helps always awkward via a description.

I like windows 10, but my recommendation is to always use the pro version. It’s quite stable however I have recently experienced blue screens on a p900 post 1903 patching with feature updates.
So restorepoints make recovery “comfortable” !!!! 😨
