Few days ago, Microsoft saw the unveiling of the sixth major Windows 10 update – the October 2018 one.
Apparently, an isolated issue was reported by a number of early users and confirmed by Microsoft. It involves user files going missing after the update process.
Microsoft said that they have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as they investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating.
One might experience some unfortunate drama, out of the blue. So if you have managed to get an update notification or manually downloaded the package, please do not install it till microsoft clarifies the issue.
