Windows 10 Update of October 2018 No Longer Deletes User’s Data

Windows 10 October 2018 Update

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update had been on a bumpy path and everything weren’t getting so much easier for Microsoft. However, after reporting quite a few issues by the users worldwide, Microsoft has finally figured out why windows 10 October update deleted user’s data from their systems or laptops and released a fixed version.

The harshness of such bug forced Microsoft to stop distribution of that update a couple of weeks back – but a fixed version of Windows 10 October update now has been delivered to Windows Insiders for testing.

Everyone who got affected by such bug is advised to contact Microsoft’s support. The bug started deleting their files and personal data which means that the only way to restoring them is to retrieve them from a backup in case if you have. The software which isn’t deleted, however, can often recover deleted files (most recently) and Microsoft’s support is always available to help users get rid of it.

“Microsoft has claimed that only a little amount of users were affected who published an explanation of a problem after losing their data”.

Aside from everything for a minute or two, you can Install Windows 10 October Update Now with so many new and exciting features and of course without losing your data any further. It’s, for now, only available for 2 types of people – those who install updates manually and those who use media-creation tool. If everything goes well according to plan, Microsoft then will offer Windows 10 Update users worldwide in coming weeks.

Every single problem raised by users is now fixed after Microsoft’s testing and development processor and comes with a different name “Windows-as-a-Service”. Though reports submitted by users weren’t really important for Microsoft for numerous reasons. Instead, Microsoft’s immediate reaction was to enable Insider to indicate that how much important each and every bug is – though, data loss bugs are quite important as compared to it, isn’t it?


Microsoft itself acknowledges that Windows 10 October 2018 Update had problems, however, overall the path is a good one. 2 specific metrics were referred by Redmond to access satisfaction alongside operating system’s quality. The first is “incident rate” (a number of customers who submitted their issues/reports). The incident rate was declined progressively throughout Windows 10’s life. Doesn’t it suggest that the company is doing something right? Then the incident rate is misleading?

With a little incident rate, a Windows version which hits plentiful people and thus is reported widely would tend to have a poorer incident rate as compared to a version with a major bug which loses data – that only affects a fraction of a customer base  – but the last issue is however quite important.

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update in April 2018 is the most highly recommended update so far – but Microsoft is now looking at “Net Promoter Score” as every released version is being recommended by people to their nearest and dearest. All in all, the main focus on this matric can only mask issues which have a lot of impact on a little number of users.
