Things don’t look that good for Windows 10 version 1809, the October 2018 feature update for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system.

Microsoft had to pull the update days after its release because of a data loss issue that impacted some devices. While the issue was not very widespread — it only affected 1 in every 10000 users — it was serious enough to pull the brakes and do another round of bug fixing and testing. The issue was a major issue but not the only issue that Windows 10 version 1809 users were plagued by.

Microsoft pushed an updated version to Insider versions already but has yet to unlock the update again on Windows Update or other distribution channels for Stable devices.

The data loss issue back then affected systems on which some default folders such as Documents or Pictures were moved to another location without moving the files they contained. The bug removed the files in the original folder.
