Windows 10 for IoT gets its own October 2018 update

Jason Reed  The Daily Dot

Microsoft has paused the rollout of Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), the latest version of the Windows 10 operating system, which Microsoft released this week, on Tuesday, October 2.

Roll back from Windows 10 version October 2018 Update to an earlier version does not help - the missing files are not restored back to great for many.

The files at risk seem to be those found in the Documents folder. If all the updates were steps forward, without complications, that would probably get a shoulder shrug from most people.

If you like to be on the cutting edge when it comes to Windows 10 updates, it might be best to rethink that policy moving forward.

The addition of a "clipboard history" will allow you to access multiple items from your clipboard instead of just the last item copied (Windows Logo key + V).




The Windows 10 October Update was supposed to empower "a new era of personal productivity" but it's already off to a bad start if the update is deleting the personal files of some users. But, the Windows 10 October update is experiencing some issues with local drivers as well. It's not yet clear when Microsoft will resume the rollout of its latest feature update. My own two machines experienced no issues with the update. And it shouldn't be the user's responsibility to check every folder after every upgrade just in case they need to restore something. The company pulled the Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 version 1809 from its website as well.

It's a new month, which means it's time to update that Windows 10 program. Here are some of the new capabilities you can expect in this surprisingly feature-packed release.

It is unclear exactly how many users are affected by the issue, though that's likely to be on the low levels mainly because Microsoft is rolling the update out in phases.

Windows Central remarks that although Windows often saves its old installation and a copy of user settings into C:\Windows.old, some users dug there in hopes of finding their lost data only to come up empty-handed. That means that freely available third-party software like Recuva may be able to recover them for you.
