That's not a new thing! That happened to me before. It started to delete files from one of my fav games. After a month the Windows 10 killed itself. I had to reinstall it. I find Windows Vista was prettier and more stable. I'm considering moving to Linux. Microsoft has always promised improvenments. It's not happening! It get year to year more and more expensive. I don't even have MS Office anymore because it's so damn expensive!

Microsoft should be paying for the computer repairs due to the updates then they probably would be more careful about the updates they create. I have had to get mine repaired because one update that showed it was completed then the next day saying it did not complete. What it did was delete my "C" drive. And cost me around $100 to get it fixed. The one that deleted files I had to reinstall some programs. Then after a month or so my computer was not acting right and had to take it to the shop AGAIN.

Just kill windows 10 and roll out a privacy first version of Windows.
MrVidification (1 month ago)
It all sounds a bit unclear as to what exactly the 1809 update was doing. Perhaps it was moving files with some users unable to relocate them, which led to complaints of files being deleted. Judging by the list of past updates I'm still on windows 10 1803. I am now glad I have relatively little space left on this system to try out the latest untested updates by Microsoft. They should reconsider that manual update option as a result

WIN10致命漏洞 ,当系统不正常启动几次,就可以选择重新安装,小孩子不知道密码,无法玩网络游戏。利用WIN10可以重新安装,把我的电脑里面的资料删的干干净净。请问要什么办法禁止WIN10重新安装功能?现在的硬件不支持WIN7,非得WIM10,我电脑几次给小孩子 重装 过。里面的资料删的干干净净。 能禁止重新安装的功能吗?有办法吗?

Windows update doesn't work after upgraded to 1809. Does anyone have the same issue as well?

My Lenovo ThinkPad W530 ran Windows 10 as late as a few days ago. Either the HDD is dead or Windows 10 has trashed the system. All I can get to is Lenovo diagnostics or a LAN checkup; Windows is kaput...for now. I'll be heading to Best Buy's Computer Geeks to see what's left. If it is a Windows 10 problem, it's back to Windows 7 Professional. (It works just fine on Ye Olde Lenovo SL410, which I'm using right now.) Fie on Windows 10!

Why in the everliving fuck would you not have several backups of more than 2 decades worth of work? Yeah, I call total bullshit. The Switch just needs to be more durable and have more stable controller connection, fuck all other features.

Nintendo had given up on trying to take down emulators and the roms, only to make money with the case they are building. They may not get the rom's, but they'll gain some profit with the case.

i got an "HP BIOS Update" today, and I just saw this video right after the update, it went through system32, and much more, I saw it went to the START START, SSSTTTARRRTTT of when you boot up your computer, its like command prompt, but just black and white, and it said "their may be several restarts, and LED lights??" like, wtf, what if people have epilepsy... I AM DAMN FREAKED OUT, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, HELP ME BEFORE IT HAPPENS, ITS OCTOBER, AND YOU SAID OCTOBER, PUBSLISHED OCTOBER 5, but the thing is weird is, that, why did everyone get it differently, you published it on the 5th, what if people got it on the 3rd then 7th then 11th now 16th?? LIKE A DAMN VIRUS, IM SCARED, HELP MEEE

For the last 10 years when updating my Mac OS, either an OS update or a whole OS upgrade, I have not once bothered to make extra backups of anything, and I also haven't lost a single file. Apple has the OS side of things pretty well handled, but they have been up to some irritating things with the hardware. I feel the Windows side wins on hardware (though Apple does make it looks very nice), but the Mac wins on the OS.

Apple: We released our new iMac but if you try to add anything that is not our product on these computers, we will implement a lockdown because we dislike anybody who is attempting to become a I.T. technician. The good side is that we have highly trained "professionals" who can fix your computer for around 1000 - 2000 dollars but in most cases cannot fix so we offer a 1 percent discount to get another iMac. Plus you can find all of our better version of keyboards, mouses and tablets at our Apple store ranging from 500-3000 dollars.

The classical Nintendo-Cartridge-System was the best ever, think about how to upgrade from Super Mario Land 1 to Super Mario Land 2! It took about two secounds and no files were lost! It took about 10 years to develop Windows, from 1995 until now they're still and only on debugging!!!

I'm still struggling with the April update which keeps rendering all my drivers useless. I've had to reinstall Windows twice. And windows keeps reversing my decision to turn off Automatic Updates without my permission. Switching to apple, or downgrading to windows seven. fuck it. Had enough.

Try linux. The nice thing is with some "live" distros, you don't need to even touch the hard drive. It is free to use and does the most common tasks easily.
