    1) Windows featured upgrades have a default 10 day rollback period.
    2) During the 10 day period end users can modify the 10 day default period to 60 days
    3) Sometimes upgrades fail and sometimes rollbacks fail
    4) If you are willing to reinstall applications and drivers Windows can be customized to save files and install any operating system as a custom install
    5) Third party software can be used to prevent Windows upgrades
    6) Windows 21H1 is expected to be released within the next 60 days and could be an additional option

    By default there is no option under Settings and Control Panel to change the default 10-day rollback period. But there is a way to increase or reduce the default 10-day rollback period, here how to:
    Open the command prompt as administrator,
    copy and paste following command and press enter key.
    DISM /Online /Set-OSUninstallWindow /Value:30

    Note: Here value 30 is the number of days that you would like to keep the files of the previous version of Windows. Where the maximum rollback period that you can currently set is 60 days.

    To check and confirm the same, type command
    DISM /Online /Get-OSUninstallWindow
    If you get “Error:3. The system cannot find the path specified” error, it is likely because there is no previous version of Windows files on your PC.

    Or you can use Option Six in this tutorial to get a 1909 ISO direct from the following link:

    Hope above information can help you.
