Microsoft has just announced that it has fixed a rare issue that caused some personal files to be erased when installing the Windows 10 October 2018 update.

Wowzers, so remember the news-item we wrote a couple of days ago, Microsoft halting the Fall update due to people losing files and documents?

After some users complained that installing the Windows 10 October update has been wiping off their data, Microsoft last week put a halt to the availability of the update (version 1809).

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

John Cable, Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery penned a long blog post to explain what went wrong during testing.

Nick Saban blasts Alabama defense after Arkansas rout
That opportunity increased even more when Boyd swept 32 yards around the left side down to the Alabama 5. He is out indefinitely, Nick Saban said Monday. "That was our message all week long, we can't help".

Implementation of code to remove empty duplicate known folders automatically during upgrade. While the reports of actual data loss are few (one one-hundredth of one per cent of version 1809 installs), any data loss is serious. If, for example, you moved the Documents folder from its location in the user profile to a new location, such as a secondary data drive, but some files remained in the old location, the setup logic for the version 1809 upgrade removed the folder in the old location as well as all of the files in it. Well, the good news is that the files can be recovered, however, Microsoft expects a phone call from you to do be able to do that. "This occurred if Known Folder Redirection (KFR) had been previously enabled, but files remain in the original "old" folder location vs being moved to the new, redirected location". For example, an empty copy of the original C:\Users\Name\Downloads folder appeared.

This includes fixes for system components such as the Windows kernel, graphics and file systems, the wireless networking and peripherals subsystems, along with the JET database engine, Windows Media Player and the Edge and Internet Explorer web browsers among others.

According to Cable, the company has activated a feature "for users to also provide an indication of impact and severity when filing User Initiated Feedback" to better ensure that serious issues actually end up in front of an engineer.

Windows 10 1809 won't be broadly released until early adopters in the Windows Insider program have tested the revised update and provided feedback to Microsoft. Microsoft has made changes to Windows 10 version 1809 that will address each of those problem areas, he promised. Also, Microsoft Support and our retail stores customer service personnel are available at no charge to help customers.
