Apparently there is just a wee small problem with the October update to Windows 10… people are reporting that the update deleted files.
What? That’s right. I guess there have been reports of files being deleted, so as a result Microsoft has stopped making it available until it can figure out what’s going on. Now, I’ve installed it on my main system and laptop and haven’t encountered this issue, and there was no mention in the news of what kind of files or the location of the files being deleted.
So right now you can’t get the upgrade even if you want it. I’ll let you know when it becomes available again (you’re not really missing anything.)
