Windows 10 October Update Rollout Resumes as Microsoft Fixes All the Known Bugs

By October 10th, 2018 AT 10:47 AM

Microsoft, which was the under the scanner last week for pulling back the Windows 10 October 2018 update, today said that it fixed all the known issues in the update and has begun the rollout again. For the unknown, Microsoft started the rollout of much-anticipated Windows 10 October 2018 update on October 2, but some users complained that installing the update is wiping off their data, which resulted in Microsoft halting the update rollout for a week.


“We have fully investigated all reports of data loss, identified and fixed all known issues in the update, and conducted internal validation,” said John Cable, Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery.

Microsoft investigated isolated reports of users missing files after updating.

“At just two days into the roll-out when we paused, the number of customers taking the October 2018 Update was limited. 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,” Cable said in a statement.

He added that Microsoft Support and our retail stores customer service personnel are available at no charge to help customers.

“We will carefully study the results, feedback, and diagnostic data from our Insiders before taking additional steps towards re-releasing more broadly,” said Cable, according to IANS.

For those impacted by the file deletion bug, Microsoft Support is trying to recover data for users who may have experienced related data loss.

“While we cannot guarantee the outcome of any file recovery work, if you have manually checked for updates and believe you have an issue with missing files, please minimise your use of the affected device and contact us directly,” Cable said, tendering an apology “for any impact these issues may have had on any of our customers”.

Right after installing the update on their compatible machine, users complained about the absence of some files, and a lot of people during the entire last week complained about the issue. Thankfully, Microsoft has stopped the rollout and now released it again.
