Microsoft has warned all Windows 10 users that its latest October 2018 update may permanently delete their personal data. The warning came after a major issue was discovered with its recent October 2018 update version 1809.

Recently, few Windows 10 users, who downloaded the October update, have been hit by this very issue and some of them took this to Reddit, Spiceworks and the Microsoft’s own Windows support forum. The victimized users warned others to urgently postpone the major 1809 update, claiming that the latest Windows update had been deleting some of their personal data/files.

In a post on Reddit a Windows 10 user wrote: “So after updating i discovered that my documents, pictures, music, videos are gone”.

 

Responding to the Redditor, one user said: “I lost my D:\Document folder.

“It is not configured as a documents library and it’s not even in system drive!

Later, Microsoft too confirmed the existence of this issue. The company in a statement said, “We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating.”

Microsoft has now pulled the Windows 10 October 2018 update.

“We will provide an update when we resume rolling out the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to customers,” said Microsoft.
