Microsoft pulls Windows 10 Update after reports of documents being deleted

Microsoft Pulls October Update, Windows Server 2019 Missing as Well - Petri

It has been a busy week for Microsoft, on Tuesday they announced the availability of Windows 10 1809 update, yesterday it became apparent that there were serious issues with the update, and now the company is removing the files from Windows Update.

Microsoft had to pause its software update after some users reported that their files were inadvertently being deleted.

The report of lost files began over on the Windows 10 Reddit when one user mentioned, "So after updating i discovered that my documents, pictures, music, videos are gone. Wtf?" It seems that the update freed up a little too much hard drive space for some people, by way of deleting their documents.

Microsoft customers can commercialize devices with new servicing options: A Semi-Annual Servicing Channel, which offers two feature update releases per year, and a Long-Term Servicing Channel, which provides security and quality updates without any new features over a 10-year period.

Windows 10 is getting a big update in its next release. While the update hadn't been pushed out to all users yet, many have already updated either as Windows Insiders or by manually downloading the update.

Any other issues found within the latest Windows 10 update?

Reports started to emerge soon thereafter that, once again, updates were not processing as smoothly as possible for some users.

The company posted an update on the official Windows 10 version 1809 support page on the Microsoft website on October 5, 2018. Those who have downloaded the update and are confronting an issue can call Microsoft's global helpline or a nearby support number. Having said that, some of the affected users are running Windows 10 Home, meaning they're highly unlikely to have that setting enabled.

"I have just updated my windows using the October update (10, version 1809)". When it is, you will also be able to connect your phone to your PC using Your Phone, but more advanced features like screen mirroring will most likely not make the cut given the restricted nature of the OS.
