    1809 Didn't Delete my files, but STAY or ROLLBACK?


    Since my Windows 10 Feature updates typically have been okay I upgraded my 3 PCS... only to learn some people are having data loss issues. My only PC that holds such data is external HD backed up and Google Backup and Sync'd as well. That said --

    -- would you rollback anyway? Is it too dangerous to keep?

    (I fear a rollback could create it's own issues sometimes.)

    Opinions appreciated

    The deed is already done. No user files here were deleted here either.

    I have looked at the windows.old folder, and not knowing much about these things, there are some user folders in there, most are empty. So a roll back maybe a greater disaster.
    I have File History and Image backups as well, on other drives so no worries.

    Do we suspect this is an extremely minor occurrence? Because I figure you'd have some peeps like you guys and some YouTube users saying they were hit.

    I will say 1809 semi-broke my bluetooth speaker connectivity.

    If it's working OK and nothing was deleted then I'd just wait for the inevitable update, 3 on 1809 here and zero problems. Everything always backed up in duplicate on external drives so not bothered anyway.

    I updated 4 PCs to 1809 with no apparent data loss. However, after seeing the data losses of other users, I rolled all four systems back to 1803 with Macrium images that were updated immediately before the 1809 upgrade. My concern was that other things will/are broken and they might not surface until later. If you have an image backup then you might want to consider migrating back to 1803 just to be safe especially if you have lots of data.
