Q: What is the status of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update? I heard it has been canceled – any idea what Microsoft is up to?
First, I can confirm the October 2018 Update (Version 1809) for Windows 10 has not been canceled.
However, it did get pulled temporarily late last week due to user reports of data deletion after the upgrade process.
Earlier this week, in our October 9th edition of the newsletter, I wrote about this issue and the mess on Microsoft’s hands considering data deletions issues has been reported to the company well ahead of their release of the October 2018 Update (Version 1809).
The same day that edition of the newsletter landed in your inboxes, Microsoft published a new blog post addressing the issues around the October 2018 Update (Version 1809).
