Microsoft has resumed rolling out the Windows 10 October update. It was originally released in the first week of last month but Microsoft had to pull the October update due to a bug which was causing data loss for those who installed it. The company has addressed the matter and is now rolling out this update to PCs once again.
Microsoft says that it has thoroughly investigated and resolved all related issues due to which it had to pause the roll out of this update. It has closely monitored feedback and diagnostic data from Windows Insiders to further ensure that there’s no data loss issue.
The company adds that it will continue to carefully study the results after resuming the roll out and will gradually make it available to more devices in phases over the coming weeks. Microsoft is taking it slow with the release to ensure that users don’t encounter such a problem again.
Microsoft says that it will offer the October Update to users through Windows Update when data shows that their device is ready. If it detects that a device may have an issue, such as an incompatible app, it will not install the update until that issue is resolved first. It will be possible for advanced users to manually install the update through the “Check for updates” options in settings.
