Microsoft has released its Updated Windows 10 October 2018 , after bugs forced the company to pull the first release offline last month. A number of Windows 10 users reported missing files after the update was released in early October. While Microsoft did re-release the update to beta testers, it has taken the company more than a month to fully test it and release it more generally today.
Microsoft’s John Cable, director of program management for Windows servicing and delivery say’s in extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss.
Microsoft is taking a very cautious approach. “If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you ‘Check for updates,’ so you avoid encountering any related problems,” says Cable.
Microsoft is now responding to the quality issues and promising a renewed focus on ensuring these mistakes don’t happen again
