It fixes the reset bug described in the articles Microsoft confirms wipe issue on resetting Windows 10/11 (20H2 – 21H2) and Windows 10/11 (21H2): Wipe does not delete user data.

Addresses a known issue that occurs when you attempt to reset a Windows device and its apps have folders that contain reparse data, such as Microsoft OneDrive or Microsoft OneDrive for Business. When you select Remove everything, files that have been downloaded or synced locally from Microsoft OneDrive might not be deleted. Some devices might take up to seven (7) days after you install this update to fully address the issue and prevent files from persisting after a reset. For immediate effect, you can manually trigger Windows Update Troubleshooter using the instructions in Windows Update Troubleshooter.

Microsoft notes that this update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack (is responsible for Microsoft updates). This update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update, but is also available from the Microsoft Update Catalog and via WSUS and WUfB. If the update from May 11, 2021 (KB5003173) or a newer LCU is missing, the special, standalone SSU from August 10, 2021 (KB5005260) must be installed beforehand. For the update, Microsoft states various known issues in the support article. Thus, an RDP connection problem is rolled back via KIR.
