Windows 10 October 2018 Update re-releases, delivering good news for Microsoft fans

Windows 10 October 2018 Update was initially released by Microsoft on October 2 during a hardware event focusing on its Surface line of products.

However, shortly after its release a number of users insisted they were experiencing problems that caused some of their precious files to be deleted without warning.

In response to the reports, Microsoft then paused the delivery of its software to fans.

Instead, the American tech giant insisted its was going to take the time to investigate and resolve the issues plaguing the firmware.

But now Microsoft has announced it is “resuming” the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to users.

John Cable, Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, said: “In early October, we paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update as we investigated isolated reports of users missing files after updating.

“We take any case of data loss seriously, and as I noted on October 9, we have thoroughly investigated and resolved all related issues.


“In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss.

“Based on this data, today we are beginning the re-release of the October Update by making it available via media and to advanced users who seek to manually check for updates.”

Although the firm insisted it was keen to release the new update, it emphasised it was going to continue the delivery “in a more measured approach” overall.

Cable emphasised such a move has been taken to “carefully study device health data” during the rollout phase.

He went on: “While the April Update had the fastest Windows 10 update rollout velocity, we are taking a more measured approach with the October Update, slowing our rollout to more carefully study device health data.

“We will offer the October Update to users via Windows Update when data shows your device is ready and you will have a great experience.

“If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you ‘Check for updates’ so you avoid encountering any known problems.

“For those advanced users seeking to install the update early by manually using ‘Check for updates’ in settings, know that we are slowly throttling up this availability, while we carefully monitor data and feedback.”

Microsoft highlighted it will only present the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to users once “data shows your device is ready”, meaning it may be weeks before some fans are able to upgrade.

Once a product is ready, heading to the settings menu of the system and pressing “check for updates” should present users with a prompt to receive the new operating system.
