Microsoft puts Windows 10 update on hold after file deletion reports

Under

Microsoft is now testing an updated version of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update that promises to fix a serious issue that led the company to pull the update following its public release last week. The company has released Windows 10 cumulative updates to several previous versions of the operating system, including the April 2018 Update, Fall Creators Update, Creators Update, and the Anniversary Update.

We have fully investigated all reports of data loss, identified and fixed all known issues in the update, and conducted internal validation.

As Microsoft's John Cable explains in a post on Microsoft's Windows Blog, the problem was with the "Known Folder Redirection" feature.

"Prior to re-releasing the October 2018 Update our engineering investigation determined that a very small number of users lost files during the October 2018 Update", stated the Microsoft announcement.

Microsoft halted the Windows 10 October 2018 Update because it was deleting some people's files.

Fellow right Nathan Eovaldi set a rather high bar for Red Sox pitching in Game 3, going seven innings and allowing just one run. David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

You can install the relevant Windows 10 cumulative update on your machines through Settings Update and Security Windows Update Check for updates. Other folders you can move include Desktop, Documents, Pictures, and Videos. So, to solve the problem, Microsoft introduced code that would delete those old, empty folders.

We will carefully study the results, feedback, and diagnostic data from our Insiders before taking additional steps towards re-releasing more broadly.

Microsoft is also updating the Feedback app in Windows 10 to enable a new feature that would allow Insiders to provide an indication of impact and severity when filing feedback.

Users who are affected by the issue are missing files and folders in their "Documents" folder.
