Microsoft's Windows 10 October Update Has Turned Into A Huge Mess

BEWARE! This Windows 10 Update Will Delete Your Files Microsoft Forced To Pull Windows 10 October 2018 Update As Users Report Files Being Deleted

"We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809)* for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating".

Microsoft advises that those who have downloaded the update to a USB drive ready for installation should wait until a new update is ready and use that instead.

The update - a major revision to Windows 10 that includes tools like a cloud clipboard and a preliminary version of its phone mirroring software - was reported to have resulted in mass file deletion from user directories as well as less alarming issues like incorrect CPU usage in Task Manager or broken audio drivers, ZDNet reported.

Users who installed the "Windows 10 October 2018" update complained that the process wiped out their user profiles, including documents and photos, the media reported.

Microsoft says it has paused the rollout while it investigates the issue. On the other hand, if you use it as a place to store needed files, make sure the option is unchecked or you will lose the content stored in the folder. The company needs to be digging deeper as deleting user files is a pretty huge problem, even if it only happens to a small number of people.

Rafael Rivera took to Twitter to post some screenshots from the Windows feedback hub.

Microsoft is recommending that affected users get in touch with the company and report the problem directly.

Windows 10 is on 700 million devices now, so it's not unreasonable to expect Microsoft to start treating it as a stable operating system, rather than a rolling beta test. The update only just hit its release date, being made available on the final day of the month, after Microsoft had to fix issues in near-final builds that increased the risk of the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
