Windows 10 October Update May Wipe Files, Have Driver Issues

  • Windows 10 October 2018 Update Available Today

The release of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update wasn't Microsoft's only announcement last night, though: The company has also unveiled a new generation of hardware, including a Surface Pro 6 tablet, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Studio 2, all of which include upgrades to Intel's latest eight-generation Core processor family. It'll become more widely available October 9, according to ZDNet. To recall, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update was announced at IFA by Microsoft as the sixth major update after the November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, and the April 2018 Update.

With all of this done, you should see a notification on your phone that you're connected to your PC, and you're ready to start using the app on your computer.

If you're prepared to install the Redstone 5 update right now, be aware that you'll need to reboot for the changes to take effect, and the reboot process may take 30 minutes or more. The Windows update adds DirectX Ray-Tracing support, finally giving those newfangled cards a proper reason to exist. Several people on Reddit and Twitter have noted that that the newest feature update for Windows 10 operating system is wiping their documents, images, and music. Microsoft has been talking for a while about DirectX-level support, and the new Windows update delivers. Of course you have to jump into Microsoft's ecosystem with their own to-do lists, Edge browser, and Bing, but if you're willing to make that jump it's a great alternative to the default Google ecosystem on Android. It is a practical addition to the Windows 10 brochure of features.

Windows 10 October Update now comes with 157 new emoji thanks to Unicode 11. This will allow you to have instant access with a linked Android phone's photos and texts on your computer. The company offers a number of new features with its latest incremental update to Windows 10. So you should be fine if this is the case, and no warning message should pop up. You can keep using your PC during this stage, though it will probably go a little faster if you busy yourself elsewhere.

The latest update is officially version 1809, build 17763. The top of the Feed page has also been refined, featuring a cleaner interface that makes good use of space, while still showing all the relevant information, including Microsoft Rewards point, weather, and calendar events.

Your second option is to download Microsoft's Update Assistant straight from its site.
