Windows 10 October Update Re-released

Windows 10 October Update Re-released
Windows 10 users will only be able to install the update if their computers have no incompatible applications.

(CCM) — It may be November, but Microsoft has finally released its Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The update was originally released in October, but the company was forced to pull it from its servers after some users found that it was causing files on their computers to disappear and data to be lost.

Microsoft has now fixed the problem, and begun rolling the long-awaited update to Windows 10 users. "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," John Cable, a Microsoft director of program management, said in a Verge report.

To access the update, Windows 10 users need to run Windows Update and check for new updates. But the October Update will only be offered if Windows Update determines that no applications installed on the system will interfere with the upgrade.

"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 related problems," Cable explained in the report.
