That said, we still do not know when Microsoft will re-release the October 10 update of Windows 10 to the public … but given the ever smaller number of minor fixes. It seems that the latest version of the most popular Operating System in the world is about to be available again.
In summary, it looks like today’s release fixes the problem of data loss that happened with .zip files. Issue reported after Microsoft stopped using the update to handle all requests.
Incidentally, after all the confusion, the company came to publicly mention that dragging files from a .zip file could actually cause data loss in some scenarios.
“There is a known issue in the October 10 update of Windows 10, where the” Do you want to replace these files? “Window no longer appears when you copy content from a .zip file.”
The cumulative update of Windows 10 October 2018 Build 17763.107 (KB4464455) for the ‘Insiders’ fixes this issue as well as another one.
“Fixed the problem where dragging (extracting) files from a .zip file in the file explorer to a write-protected location, the overwrite warning simply did not appear. (and the operation failed silently).
In addition, we fixed an issue where some roaming profiles did not work properly. “
In short, with all the problems now fixed, it is likely that Microsoft will re-launch the update in the next few days! Probably still today, or tomorrow.
