Windows 10 Update: Would You Like Deleted Files And Blue Screens With That?

As users complain of blue screens of death, deleted files and reboot loops, here’s what you need to know about this Windows 10 update.

There’s a lot of truth in the notion that you can’t please all the people all of the time, as Microsoft knows only too well. With Windows 10 now installed on more than one billion devices, there will always be a wide variation in terms of user satisfaction. One area where this variation can be seen perhaps most clearly is that of updates.


The problems those users are reporting to the Microsoft support forums and on social media have included the installation failing and looping back to restart again, the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) following a “successful” update and computers that simply refuse to boot again afterward. Among the more common issues, in terms of complaints after a Windows 10 update, were Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity related ones. But there were have also been users complaining that after a restart, all files from the C drive had been deleted.


Microsoft asks that any users experiencing problems use the Windows + F keyboard shortcut, or select Feedback Hub from the Start menu, to provide feedback so it can investigate.

More practically speaking, if you are experiencing any Windows Update issues, I would always suggest you head for the Windows Update Troubleshooter. This, more often than not, fixes any error code problems, Be warned, though, I have known it take more than one running of the troubleshooter before updates are all successfully installed, so do persevere
