    I'd think even the term "issue" is an exaggeration :lol:

    Can't really see that there'd even be a conceivable parallel universe in which my data would be subject to those circumstances.

    * Move data to another location.
    * Don't actually move it at all.
    *Tell Windows to delete the user profile.

    Well duhhh!

    People losing data because Microsoft let a previously-reported bug slip into the final release of a major update for the most widely used operating system in the world is funny to you?

    Backup? It's built in, has been since windows {old one probably vista} file history is even easier.
    $80 external permanently plugged in running hourly backups. It's not rocket surgery

    A few people lost data coz they'd created for themselves a quite bizarre scenario which nobody in their right mind would configure. Yes, that's funny to me.

    Yep, Microsoft patched it up and ensured that other dopey people can't do it again in future. Coz, like, in today's world not even dumbarse stupid is immune from "It must be somebody else's fault!"

    in the typical Microsoft don't respect your settings anymore method.

    defaults for all! If not, bye bye stuff!

    admit it, it's lazy Microsoft non-existent testing of anything unusual. Which you are entitled to do if you so choose.

    Actually, only thing which didn't 'stick' for me during the platform upgrade were the "Choose what to do with xxx removable device" ones. All my defaults remained as they were. Maybe I'm just unusual :)

    Like high Sierra , whose uncanny hate for user data when upgrading from 10.12, or earlier, lost everything during HFS to apfs conversion.
    They all have issues at times

    Sorry, but it's painfully obvious that you're deliberately trolling. I've got better things to do than to debate with someone this obtuse, thanks for playing :)


    Sure, but basically Microsoft has exponentially increased the chance of something like this happening by:

    1. Insisting on releasing 6-monthly major updates.
    2. Making the updates do a full reinstall of Windows on top of the existing installation.
    3. Canning proper quality control testing.
    4. Ignoring insider feedback which reported bugs like this.
    5. Not releasing a Preview to insiders.

    and last, but not least:

    6. FORCING this update on unwitting users.

    If anyone is unable to go back to Win 7 due to a new system/chipset, I recommend you run a program such as O&O ShutUp10.
    It allows you to disable a whole heap of Win10 regressions including spyware/data mining, advertising, forced updates, Cortana etc via a broad collection of registry hacks. Microsoft goes to great lengths to break these mods via 'feature updates' so keep that in mind before updating.

    That's actually a handy looking configuration tool. And if the configurations you make revert during a regular six-monthly upgrade update, then how hard is it to click, click, click reset them again? That's just a few seconds inconvenience, after all.

    your sample size of one was previously noted in the thread.

    Straight up PI, I like what they are doing - the big forced updates, the cleanup upgrades. HOWEVER, the motivation behind it is what ruins everything at the expense of everything. They are not doing this for the end user they are doing it to better serve themselves and they are pushing hard to monetise the userbase at the expense of all else.

    This mixture means we end up with scenarios like the data loss thing. Because they were so focused on flogging office subs and whatever else they are flogging.

    The user is last and the shareholder is first. This mix is backwards and it's right across their entire business now from corporate to gaming to consumer.

    Imma let you finish, but I just have to say I wouldn't trust Google or Apple to be able to carry off two major updates a year, much less Microsoft.
