Yesterday, we reported that the latest Windows 10 October 2018 Update is deleting files stored on the computers of users. Many Redditors and Microsoft forum users complained regarding the issue, and it looks like the company has listened to them.
In a recent development, Redmond has pulled the October 2018 update due the file deletion bug. On its Windows support page, Microsoft writes:
The support page also mentions different solutions in case you’re running Windows 10. If you think you’re running the buggy update, you can contact Microsoft support. However, if the update has been downloaded and it remains to be installed, the company asks you to avoid doing that.
It’s really frustrating to see Microsoft shipping the final stable version of Windows with a massive bug even when there’s an army of regular users taking part in the preview programs and testing the release.
