A few days ago, Windows users initially started reporting that their documents folder had gone missing after an upgrade to the October 2018 update and Microsoft had since confirmed that it has been looking into the matter. Although the loss of Spotify and Discord doesn't pose too much of an issue, sources indicate that all files from their Documents and Pictures folders were targets of the supposed bug.
In addition to the October update no longer being available, it's also being reported that Windows Server 2019 is not available for download either. The availability of Your Phone on Windows 10 was in a post on the official Windows blog, the announcement, and on the Windows account. While the update hadn't been pushed out to all users yet, many have already updated either as Windows Insiders or by manually downloading the update.
These problems can be seen on any computer running Windows 10 October 2018 Update and the latest patches and the latest version of Ccleaner. As noted, this update is deleting user documents and other files. With Windows 10 October 2018 update, Microsoft had been working for the better functioning of the Android and iOS devices. But rolling out an update that deletes massive amounts of user data with apparently no recovery option causes real harm to real people.
As the problem became apparent, users were looking for ways to recover some of their deleted files, but without success.
Microsoft is using a progressive deployment scheme, and all Windows 10 users have not received an update of their operating system for the biennium. It's not yet clear when Microsoft will resume the rollout of its latest feature update.
If you have been affected, you should be able to revert to version 1803. I've installed it myself on my main box with nary a hitch, and I've enjoying some of the new features. For step by step instructions, check out our article on how to rollback Windows 10 to the previous version. As always, now is a good time to take a serious look at how you back up your content so that you don't find yourself on the wrong end of a bad update.
