KB4464330 For Windows 10 Version 1809 Released By Microsoft

Microsoft releases KB4464330 for Windows 10 version 1809 to fix the issue that resulted in the deletion of user profile when upgrading to the OS Version 1809. After the release of Windows 10 1809 (October update), many users reported a serious issue with this update. As the users started to install the latest update, they reported that the upgrade process is wiping out their data from user profile. This included documents, pictures, and personal files along with other installed programs. After the upgrade, the data was not found and this annoyed the Windows 10 users.

The statement from Microsoft:

“We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809)* for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating.”
