    Sorry sergeant, I can't use target tracking right now. Microsoft have paused the rollout of this feature due to file deletion issues.

    I wouldn't trust my life to MSFT. NEVER. Look at all the bugs with win10 releases. Are you joking? We regret to inform you, your son/daughter died due to a BSOD. Ouch.
