Windows update suspended after reportedly deleting user files

Microsoft has suspended the October update after users are reporting missing user files after update.

We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating

Windows users who updated to the October 2018 update have been reporting missing files, but not everyone has reported missing files.

Microsoft is looking into the problem

We are still waiting for more information from Microsoft about the error. Understandably some users are not happy about a major tested update deleting files.

You can still get your files back

Users are reporting that you can get files back from the Windows backup folder that is created during the update. Some are not finding the files in the backup folder, but it’s still worth checking.
