Microsoft Pulls Windows 10 October 2018 Update


Microsoft urges customers to wait with the installation of the Windows 10 feature update; users who downloaded the ISO files manually or created installation media are urged not to install it until new media is available. If you have already upgraded and find that your files are missing, Microsoft recommends you contact their support hotline at 1-800-MICROSOFT.

Following a number of quality control issues with the October 2018 Update for Windows 10, Microsoft finally paused its rollout. Numerous reports in Feedback Hub, Microsoft's bug-reporting tool for Windows 10, complain of data deletion after installing preview releases. For what it's worth, I just ran an Update through Settings as usual. But, the Windows 10 October update is experiencing some issues with local drivers as well. As noted, this update is deleting user documents and other files.

A few days ago we have seen Microsoft pushed a cumulative update for Windows 10 which brings users the infamous blue screen of death. Microsoft hadn't started pushing the update automatically via Windows Update yet, and it looks like that it may be delayed since, as noticed by Techdows, it has removed the update from its download site.

Another user on Twitter who also experienced the same issue warned people to back up data to OneDrive.

Microsoft has been a name in the field of softwares, electronics, computers as well as related devices from quite a time and every time a new update is unfolded, it promises something bigger and better. It's not yet clear when Microsoft will resume the rollout of its latest feature update. For step by step instructions, check out our article on how to rollback Windows 10 to the previous version. At the moment, there's pretty much no way to recover the lost data. This new version of Windows comes with many changes and many improvements both visually and under the hood. We don't have any confirmation as to when the Redmond-based software giant will restore the update process.
