Is the problem with the recent Windows 10 update that deletes PC files fixed?


We have several Windows 10 PCs in our office that are looking to do a Windows update.

I know there is a bad Windows 10 update that has been released recently that deletes PC files when the PC is updated.

We have been postponing Windows updates since hearing about this but will have to update our PCs eventually.

Is the problem with the Windows update that deletes PC files fixed?

2 days ago,  regarding Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) microsoft describes in the following blog.

as per blog

Today we take the next step towards the re-release of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update by providing the updated version to our Windows Insider community.  We will carefully study the results, feedback, and diagnostic data from our Insiders before taking additional steps towards re-releasing more broadly.

so better to test latest updates before installation on your environment on a test machine .... or wait for the latest release

all the best

"there is a bad Windows 10 update" - no, it wasn't an update but rather an upgrade. Although Microsoft calls them "feature updates", we should distinguish between updates and upgrades. The updates, those that arrive automated through the windows update interface, don't cause problems - just use them as usual.

The feature update to version 1809 (=upgrade to 1809) will soon be re-released and available in a corrected form. You will not get it before it's corrected, so don't worry.
