As Halloween approaches, Microsoft will re-release the update for the world in October 2018. This time, Microsoft is sure it will not delete your files. Microsoft has fixed two different data loss errors in the original "stable" version.
On October 30, 201
This latest build fixes the nasty bugs that can cause data loss when working with ZIP files. Microsoft has also fixed several other bugs, including issues with incorrect information displayed in Task Manager. And of course, Microsoft has already fixed the big problem where Windows deleted 10 folders that were full of some people's files. Windows 10's update from October 2018 will likely appear at all sometime in the next one or two weeks. We recommend that you always be up to date to back up your files. If you have the Professional Edition of Windows 10, you may also delay the update. However, if you have a home version of Windows 10, you should only click Check for Updates. (Seriously, Microsoft said you should not click this button!)
It's good to see that Microsoft actually uses the release preview ring this time. The October 2018 update was originally released during a press event, and Microsoft completely overrun the normal Release Preview process. What could go wrong, right?
As Ars Technica has argued, the Windows 10 development process is flawed. Big bugs like these should not lead to average Windows users. Microsoft has dismissed or reassigned so many of its internal testers, and so many tests are done by Windows Insiders.
Even worse, most Windows insiders would never dare to install these builds on their primary PCs. In fact, Microsoft recommends against it. This means that new versions of Windows 10 are not adequately tested before being dropped on unsuspecting users.
At the moment, it looks like Microsoft has finally fixed the October 2018 update issues. But Microsoft should have understood it the first time.
