I’ve run across several articles on significant problems with the latest upgrade of Windows 10 (“1809” upgrade). Issues include deletion of user data (e.g. deletion of all data in Documents). There is more in the link below.
I modified my Update settings as suggested in the article, but some of what I read in other sites has me worried. Microsoft is apparently notorious for ignoring update settings when performing system upgrades.
I’ve backed my data up (not a whole lot of it, its a relatively new PC), but who wants the chore of restoring data (people have reported losing hundred’s of GB, including data on drives other than the system drive), not to mention that if the upgrade happens without warning, I’ll lose stuff I’ve most recently been working on if it was done between backups.
Should I be worried? Is there anything additional I should do?
