    Update -

    I am currently being 'dinged' for a Windows Update.

    With all the problems from 1809 - do I want to let the Update proceed?

    A FWIW here, I run 5 machines and they all run good on the last update. Took a long while to finally get running again but run they did. Jean.

    I wouldn't... not yet anyway.

    Have a look at this Win10 version 1809, take two: A guide to the builds and what they break article from very well-respected Woody Leonhard posted yesterday.

    However, if you want to install something that's apparently still buggy then ultimately it's your choice.

    (I notice that even well-known MS aficionado Ed Bott has changed his tune about Windows 10 updates. See his Opinion: Two Windows 10 feature updates a year is too many article.)

    Hope this helps...

    Supposedly Microsoft has fixed the data loss issue. If you can back up your data prior to doing the update, it should be safe now. The bug appeared to only affect users that relocated the system user directories - Documents, Pictures, Music etc. Most people (including me) were not affected. See
    https://www.zdnet.com/article/window...-deletion-bug/

    for detils.

    At this stage, 1809 has been withdrawn, and when it was available (for 2 days) it was not "offered" to anyone through Windows Update. It was only available to those who manually clicked on "check for updates".
    If you're being "dinged" for an update, it must be a cumulative update for your existing (presumably 1803) version. Nothing to worry about, so go ahead and let it happen.

    Is there any way for me to determine what the update is before I let it go ahead?

    Yesterday I received an update of 1803 which took it up to OS Build 17134.345 (KB4462919). That's probably it (?)

    See this thread.

    If you're not in the Insider program, then it's the normal 2nd Tuesday update. As always, do your monthly pre-update OS partition image. Back up your personal data files also, if you have too many to lose.

    I got my 2nd Tues update to 1803 on Tuesday—small update, no issues.

    Are you referring to the "re-released" offer of the update, it seems to me that it is fine as none of my machines got clobbered. Also, Jerry is of the same state of mind. I would mention that the statement :

    >> to install something that's apparently still buggy <<

    is not fair, ( excuse me ! ) to the OP. My three 18252 machines are fine, thank you. I am letting the cat out, yes, I am on Insiders. I totally appreciate your inputs. Jean

    Now a ?
    18252 is an Insider Preview build for 19H1. It has nothing to do with the October 2018 re-release.

    When I get informed that an update is ready, I cancel that screen and open Windows Update. I tells me there what updates are ready to install.

    @Soomeay please follow up on Lugh's post #11. I have seen a myriad of problems too many times when as a result of Windows Updates not being kept-up-to date.
