The surprisingly early start for the Windows 10 October 2018 update on October 3 turns out to be a debacle for Microsoft. The Redmond had a Surface event, in which the Surface Pro 6 and other new Surface devices were presented, used as a launch date for the latest Windows update.
As with the Windows 10 April 2018 update but also the October update despite extensive testing probably fraught with serious errors. Numerous users who have already installed the update report online the complete loss of their Windows user profiles and the document folder contained therein. Unlike a bug that makes the system useless or unstable, this is one of the worst bugs that can be imagined in a system update.
Also regarding the announcement of the bug, the incident for Microsoft is even more embarrassing than the shortly before the launch because of a bug once again postponed Windows 10 April 2018 Update. After all, at that time almost only risk-taking hobbyists were concerned, who got the seemingly finished update in advance via a download trick of Microsoft’s servers and installed.

In view of the warning from Microsoft, we can only advise against using it if you have not previously backed up all the data in the Documents folder or the entire system.
Even the one about the rollback function, with which you can undo an update, should not return the deleted data again. If you’re also affected by the bug, you can call Microsoft at 0180 6672255 and ask for help.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is working feverishly on a solution and should provide an updated “final” version of the update in the next few days. Why such a serious mistake despite millions of beta testers in the Windows Insider program was not found in time, is difficult to understand.
