After more than a month passed since its initial debut, Microsoft has finally begun rolling out the October 2018 Update again to Windows 10 users. The update was first released last month (hence the name) but was met by a serious bug which caused some users’ files to go mysteriously missing. This led to the company pulling the software from its servers and halting the rollout for an undisclosed amount of time.

The following statement was given to the press regarding the update and the lack of data loss issues currently present in Windows 10 build 1803.

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.

To install the presumably safe update on your Windows 10 machine, visit the “Update & Security” section of the Settings app and hit “Check for updates.”
