Microsoft Rereleases Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019

Microsoft Re-releasing Windows 10 October Update (1809) Today

Last week, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 2019 Preview Build to insiders in the Fast ring.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update was initially released by Microsoft on October 2 during a hardware event focusing on its Surface line of products.

The rocky launch of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update has been particularly embarrassing for Microsoft, but it looks like it is taking the lessons it learned seriously.

However, shortly after its release a number of users insisted they were experiencing problems that caused some of their precious files to be deleted without warning. Soon after, Microsoft explained that new code created to remove duplicate folders if a certain Windows 10 feature was enabled had caused the problem. The company also pushed cumulative updates to all the older versions of the operating system, including version 1809.

The original release of the October Update 2018 for Windows 10 was marred by problems including users complaining that the download had steamrollered through existing data on the drive, that ZIP file contents were being unrecoverably borked and, most recently, issues surrounding file associations which were resolved by this week's Patch Tuesday. In a blog entry, the first in a series, Microsoft goes into depth about its testing process, and its plans to fix it up for next time. The update fixes just one vulnerability in Flash, but I'm sure most of us would rather Flash died off completely already.


Going forward, Microsoft is making adjustments to its "Windows as a Service" model and will step up its quality control measures.

"In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss".

More importantly, for commercial customers, today starts the 30-month servicing windows; this applies for all updates including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019.
