Microsoft has started automatic updating of Windows 10 October 2018 Update for all users three months after its release. This writes Ars Technica.
Initially, the update caused a number of problems for users, including deleting files in the system. After complaints, the company stopped distributing the new version of the OS and a month later corrected errors. After that, the October 2018 Update was available only to advanced users who manually installed the update. As a result, the new version of the system had a very weak distribution and Microsoft launched automatic deployment.
Now the update will be installed on all compatible computers that were selected by a special Microsoft algorithm. At the first stage, only users of those computers whose configuration is exactly compatible with the update will receive it, and then more and more users will receive it.
Windows 10 October 2018 Update was released on October 2, 2018. After installing the update, users started complaining about deleting files from the My Documents folder. So, one of them lost 220 gigabytes of files, which he collected for 23 years. In addition, after the upgrade, compatibility issues were observed with Intel processors Skylake generation and newer. This leads to an increase in the load on the chip, and in the case of laptops significantly reduces battery life.
