Just a couple days after announcing the general availability of the Windows 10 October 2018 update, Microsoft had to stop the public rollout over the weekend after acknowledging that installing the update could erase personal files. In response to the report, Microsoft has hit pause on the rollout until further notice.

Users are being urged not to install the latest October Update after some reported that they had lost all their documents and photos. They have the tools to get you back to a good state.

Microsoft has suspended the roll-out of its October 2018 Windows update, following claims of mass file deletion.

There have been a lot of users who have taken to social media and Microsoft's own support website to report the problem.

Crosby misses four field goals as the Packers fall to the Lions
He lost a pair of fumbles on strip sacks and started slowly on a day when he was without two of his three starting receivers. He did not participate in practice on either Wednesday or Thursday as the Packers prepared for their game against the Lions.

Windows 10 is on 700 million devices now, so it's not unreasonable to expect Microsoft to start treating it as a stable operating system, rather than a rolling beta test.

Dona Sarkar, who runs the Windows Insider Program, tweeted that those who are affected by this issue to call Microsoft's support lines. On the other hand, if you use it as a place to store needed files, make sure the option is unchecked or you will lose the content stored in the folder.

Microsoft's Your Phone developers have acknowledged that this is not the intended behaviour, though we wonder how such as easily detected issue could have slipped through.

Those who are facing problems after installing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, can recover their data by going back to the previous update under Settings Update & Security Recovery. There were more and more serious bugs being discussed on forums, with the most widely reported and serious probably being the deleting of user files in the Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos folders.
