Microsoft pulls Windows 10 October 2018 update as users files went missing

Earlier this week, Microsoft started distributing the, version 1809, to Windows users who manually checked for updates.

Our wannabe fictional overlord Josh Pozzolo (aka sweatshopking) just reviewed Microsoft Windows 10's October 2018 update, and he pretty much likes it.

However, the most important issue is the deletion of user files located in the directory.

In addition to some security and privacy enhancements, the update includes several helpful features that most users will likely appreciate. The update was only available to Windows 10 users who actively sought it out by running the Windows Update utility, or who downloaded it directly from Microsoft's website.

"Last night I updated Windows 10 and it all went smoothly, but then I find that all my files in Documents are deleted".

Some users affected by the 1809 update were lucky enough to see "Desktop", "Documents" and "Downloads" folders simply moved over to a secondary or tertiary drive. Now, this application must face a new problem, as it does not work correctly in the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update. Those who have installed the update on their machines are regretting as it has resulted in wiping out large amounts of data that was backed up on the devices, but not on Onedrive. The upgrade became available during the company's Surface event on Tuesday, but in the days that followed, numerous users across the web reported that the transition deleted massive chunks of data.

Microsoft presents a list of features that were removed or outdated in the next version of Windows 10.

Now Microsoft is readying for another major Windows 10 update that was about to hit sometime this month.

It is clear that Ccleaner is not going through its best moments, nowadays, and everything comes from its purchase by Avast and changes that have been included, such as data collection. So far Microsoft hasn't issued a response on how to fix this issue but if you're reading this, might be time to back up those saves in case you are hit with this bug when your PC updates.
