Upgrade Operating System Built-in Step: Add Option to Keep Files Only

Customer does not have the store installed and using the built-in TS step keeps files and apps. I know that the "OSDSetupAdditionalUpgradeOptions" variable can be used, but it would be nice to have the option on the built-in TS step.

        Were you able to find steps to re-provision and re-install the store?

        The Store and other built-in apps were uninstalled during the rollout of W10. Management at the time wanted no store presence. The method we found at the time came from this site: http://www.scconfigmgr.com/2016/03/01/remove-built-in-apps-when-creating-a-windows-10-reference-image/

        Now we are running into issues where we need the store to install certain things (Windows Photo Viewer, Feedback Hub...etc). In order to get the store back we need to do an in-place upgrade with either the data only or data and settings switch.

        The settings that you listed below would be what I am looking for, I would likely use the Data only or the Data and Settings option depending on testing.
