      I am still on WIN 10 Pro 1709. I have followed the advice here and am always at least one version behind. With the forthcoming release of 1809 I downloaded the ISO for 1803 on 09/28/18, to install later, before it was replaced with 1809.  Is that 1803 version free from the “lost files” problem, i.e. did it affect 1809 only, or did it affect both?

      I seem to recall reading that it was affecting both versions. (My C: drive [250 Gb SSD] is reserved exclusively for OS and other installed programs. All data, photos, etc. on D: HDD.) So what I really am asking, I guess, is if they “updated” 1803 into the same problem, since there had been no such issue up until now with 1803.

      I really wasn’t aware of a “lost files” issue with the 1803 .iso from the M$ Web site, interestingly last night @2100MST 15/10/18 the Windows 10 download Web page was still sending out Win10 media creator (to make your own .iso) labelled “/1803” so I take it to mean either they have no confidence in the 1809 offering, some one forgot to update the Web site or more likely all the issues are not yet resolved with 1809.
      Win10 1803 is probably still good to go if you run it from the Desktop, a buddy of mine did the other week and reported no problems and reckoned it was quicker than allowing M$ to do it through WUD.
      Just to be crystal clear here, its 1809 that does have the missing files issue after install and as always you should back up comprehensively what you need to save with any upgrade.

        I think 1809 has only been re-released to the Insiders so far, for further testing.

          Yeah that’s what I figured here, it was covered here earlier in other Topics, I just gave it a try as I used Martin Brinkman’s method a few weeks back to get 1809 version for testing. Seemingly the Cumm update fixed my Network issues that I was having. Hence checked to see if the new version had it already integrated (not hard to do add the update and the SSU with DISM) but time consuming. Hilarious to think 2 weeks after the official release the final versions still in one of the “rings” for testing, you cant write this stuff some days lol
