Microsoft has stopped the Windows 10 October update, the software giant wants to launch the update on Surface event earlier this week. But users spotted some of the Windows 10 documents missing or being deleted, therefore, the updating plan stopped while the company investigating the reasons behind this inconvenience and reports behind data loss.
“We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating,” Microsoft writes on its Windows 10 support site.
Microsoft said that the affected users can contact the company helpline directly, or if you have manually downloaded the October update then don’t install it until the new error-free version is available. Moreover, other windows 10 users were complaining the Microsoft edge browser and other store apps have been unable to connect to the internet after the update. One user complained about the loss of more than 220GB of data including photos and other documents.
The update also become blocked on certain PCs because of the intel driver incompatibilities. In April 2018, version 1803 the update officially released that month even at the initial release it had some issues due to compatibility problems with Avast antivirus software, disk drivers for some SSDs, and other complained about buggy visual performance following the update. That’s why the company delayed the release over Blue Screen of Death issues.
It is not clear that how many users get affected by this problem, it is surprising yet baffling that such a serious “bug” issue never detected and slipped during QA tests process. Microsoft is also planning to further delay the latest Windows 10 October update until next week but now it seems like the release is on hold.
