Do not rush to update Windows 10: your files may be deleted

Written by Hassan Abbas

Windows 10 October 2018 Update permanently deleted documents, music, and photos of some users. What is the reason – is unclear. Numerous users have reported in various forums and social networks that a recent major Windows 10 update called October 2018 Update has deleted some files from their computers. So far, Microsoft has not commented on the situation, and the number of complaints from people from different parts of the world is gradually increasing.

Judging by the numerous reviews, after installing Windows 10 October 2018 Update, document files (from Word, Excel, and the like), music and photos are deleted. Some have suggested that the cause of the problem lies in the incorrect synchronization with the standard OneDrive cloud storage: due to some bug, the files are not copied to the “cloud”, but permanently deleted from the computer (bypassing the “Trash”). However, others have refuted this hypothesis: according to them, the deleted files are not synchronized with the OneDrive repository. According to some reports, the system rollback did not help: the missing files were not recovered.

At the moment, it is not known how users are at risk of deleting multimedia files and documents. What is clear is that before installing Windows 10 October 2018 Update, it is advisable to back up all important files.
