A new Windows update is out. It’s the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, or known as version 1809. Twice a year, Microsoft rolls out a chock-full of installs in its updates which is knows as the twice a year major Windows updates. From experience, we see tons of customers walking into our Windows laptop repair shop with either the blue screen of death or on their 25th hour of still waiting for the Windows updates to finish.
So, you’re probably wondering now, should I even install this Windows 10 October Windows Update?
Well, the short and long answer is heck no!
If you’ve heard the rumor that this update is literally deleting files, well, the rumor is true. Microsoft has actually pulled a mulligan by totally removing it from its Windows Updates site. So, if it is floating on your computer, don’t install it. Yes, it can absolutely delete your files.
To be safe, do not install any Windows updates in the month of October for 2018.
I know that sounds pretty extreme, but you don’t want to lose your files, do you?
