I had earlier pointed out some free space issues with the Win 10 October update but now some people are experiencing files being deleted from the drive.

See https://www.zdnet.com …lus-intel-driver-warning/ (external link)

Do a backup, then lock down the PC from updates and await a fix.

Whoever thought upgrading something as complex as Windows every six months and pushing it on users needs to be beaten.

Severely.

You don't have to upgrade, it's not compulsory.


Football is a very simple game. Twenty-two players chase a ball and Germany always win.

You must have missed this part...

For those who'd rather not be automatically bumped up to the latest Windows 10, ZDNet's Ed Bott has instructions here for taking control of the update.

If you run Windows 10 Pro, the update will likely be pushed down because the default settings provide for automatic downloads. The instruction to avoid the download are at https://www.zdnet.com …o-get-it-how-to-avoid-it/ (external link).

It is if you're running Home. And people shouldn't have to go out of their way to avoid having their computer FUBARed by Microsoft. I'm still on 1709 because I have Pro and did a secpol edit to make Windows Update in general behave as it did under Win7, but most people don't even know that's an option. I don't like playing Russian roulette with my PC every 6 months. Even if you do avoid the "feature updates", you can only it for 18 months before they stop issuing security updates.

I am running Windows 10 Home... how do I not get this upgrade?

Most of my data is not stored on C but another internal drive in my system.

You can set your Internet connection as "metered" which will block it but I believe that also blocks security updates.

DEFERRING THE OCTOBER 2018 UPDATE

If, on the other hand, you'd prefer to allow other people to uncover the bugs and compatibility issues that are inevitable with a new update of this magnitude, you have several options. (Assuming, that is, that you're running a business edition of Windows 10. Sorry, there are no update management tools for Windows 10 Home.)

The update was so bad that Windows has pulled it ...see https://www.zdnet.com …ober-update-version-1809/ (external link)

Does anyone make an anti-Microsoft package to complement my antivirus and antimalware? :)

JFC, Microsoft. Get your sheeet together.

Someone needs to lose their job over deleting the user's documents folder. I'm sure in their arrogance, they just assumed everyone would have all their docs on OneDrive and email on Exchange so it wouldn't be a problem. :rolleyes:

Maybe that's a surreptitious way to force people to keep their data on the cloud. Just being cynical, of course... kind of.

The first thing I do when getting a new computer is to partition the drive,all the important stuff goes on the new partition and on an external drive,then if windows goes tits-up all my stuff is safe,nobody keeps important stuff in the docs folder do they?

Doesn't matter where you keep your important stuff as long as you have a solid backup plan with offsite storage and versioning....
