The Window 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) is now available for download, but along with the new features and improvements, it appears that some users are not having a smooth upgrade experience.
Shortly after the new version became available as a manual download (using the Media Creation Tool, Update Assistant, and Windows Update) several users started reporting that the upgrade process is wiping out their documents, pictures, and other personal files along with previously installed programs.
Pays to wait with Microsoft..... I don't want to be a guinea pig. Never fails, always some glitch for early adopters.
Update with little difficulty. Like the dark mode feature.
I wonder if it has something to do with Storage Sense. In theory it is suppose to move infrequently used files to OneDrive.
All I can say is I haven't had any issues with my 2 computers, but I turned Storage Sense off on both of them too.
With 1709.. wiped out 4 TB of data
jfossy, how do I turn Storage Sense off on my Win 10 laptop?
they pulled the update for 1809 until they repair it to many people lost pictures and other things went wrong some complained the edge browser couldn't connect to the internet ! I guess im one of the lucky ones I updated and all went well never lost anything or broke anything , I also did a full backup and copied important files to another drive just incase !
The only thing I lost was some lua scripting from the ubuntu on windows system.
stored on a "drive" in my documents, guess windows has problems with the time stamping
restored; 2 minutes
Thanks for the Heads Up!
Windows 10 doesn't give you a choice to postpone updates, does it? How exactly do you delay updates?
Updated both my computers yesterday ….. no problems …..
"September 26, 2018—KB4458469 (OS Build 17134.320)
September 26, 2018
OS Build 17134.320
Note This update has been re-released because of a missing solution. If you installed build 17134.319, please install this newer version of OS build 17134.320."
The latest update is the October 1809 Fall Update - OS Build 17763.1 It was released on October 2, 2018.
I guess that's what happens if you don't opt out of Microsoft's Insider Program.
Us regular users are still on Build 1803.
"Note This update has been re-released because of a missing solution. If you installed build 17134.319, please install this newer version of OS build 17134.320."
I suspect that this correction comes directly from the "test" installs discussed here in preparation for the 1809 build.
By the time it's downloaded to our machines, most major problems should be solved.
I installed the October 1809 Fall Update - OS Build 17763.1 the first day it was released to the masses on October 2. No problems whatsoever...
Go to the search field in the lower left corner and type in "Storage" (without the quotes). In the next screen select "Storage" and on the next screen you will find the ability to toggle Storage Sense ON/OFF.
It had to do with moving directory to another drive
Glad I opted out.....
I guess there is a cost for those who wanted to get the updates early to "test" the changes for Microsoft.
Started on Microsoft many years ago, but slowly getting more and more Chromed. Its a pain learning the system, but MS is having too many glitches for me
I don't understand about you getting more and more Chromed. Chrome is nothing more than a browser, just like Edge and IE are browsers. I assume Chrome users, like you and me, would be just as susceptible to this MS problem whether we use Chrome or another browser.
I'm guessing windwalker is talking about Chrome OS instead of Chrome browser.
News like this makes me appreciate the value of backups.
nick - do u have any more info re moving what directory to what drive?
There is no need to worry about moved directories anymore. Microsoft isolated the bug that caused the data loss problem (that affected less than 1/100th of 1% of Version 1809 installs worldwide) and fixed it. They have re-released the fixed October (Fall) Update. Anyone that installed the October Fall Update before it was pulled, fixed and re-released has a smaller update they need to install.
Thanks for the info, good to know.
I installed the fix and an adobe flash update that they released . its strange I moved my pictures to another drive and made it the default location but left my docs on the system drive and never lost a thing and my system drive is an ssd I guess I just got lucky ! but then again not all PC's had the problem
