    I ran into this strange issue the other day - I extract from com0presed files a lot. I was copying over some files from a zip for a program update and it took me a bit to figure it out - it silently failed. I ended up deleting the originals. before copying.

    This release is a bit of a muck-up, isn't it?
    It is still doing it in the latest CU 17763.104 but it works correctly in the latest fast ring release.

    There are so few people that use Windows Explorer to extract compressed files that maybe that's why this bug went unnoticed:

    The Windows 10 October 2018 Update has another strange file management issue which could lead to data loss


    I already confirmed that the bug exists but I also confirmed that this bug is not present in the Fast ring and Skip Ahead builds, so Microsoft may already know about this bug and they are going to back ported the fix to O18U with a CU as they have done several times in the past and as they did recently with the fix of the bugs of the task manager.

    I can confirm that it exists in both the x86 and x64 version of 1809, 17763.55.



    I use it all the time, but the bug only hits when you extract a file to somewhere where a file of the same name already exists. Not something I generally do, so I hadn't spotted this one

    I found that bug some time ago. This is the hub entry. https://aka.ms/AA2raiv
    I haven't been using File Explorer in a very long time, because I think it's full of bugs and I get a lot of unexpected behavior. One thing is for sure, it is very slow. CMD has been my goto place for a few years if I handle files.

    When are these updates going to resume?

    I am guessing Microsoft will be releasing another ISO?

    Problem is we don't know that it was ever a problem on the 19H1 builds so it may not have been fixed as such.

    What I fail to understand is HOW updates break pre-existing behaviour.

    If I were a hacker, I'd just run older 'fixed' exploits against new code, it's probably quicker than trying to find new vulnerabilities.

    New coders attack old code with bright idea; either there's no regression testing schedule, or it's been revised or rewritten. MS lost swathes of testers passing that back into the development team. Terrible idea.

    MS's test requirements for Windows could be massive given the range of compatibility issues, devices, drivers, programs; without a cast iron spec to work to, rigidly adhered to by all, you'd be sunk.

    I suspect that unless MS revises its development process significantly we'll see much more of the same.

    @winactive

    Simple -- it's called REGRESSION -- often forgotten in development testing or rollout of updates -- but sometimes fixing another problem or adding a "feature" can cause a previous component to fail -- so many cases I've seen in I.T areas where even the testing scripts don't take account of regression problems - and when these bite - they can bite big and are horrible to fix as you then have to redo all the subsequent changes to see if anything else is broken.

    Unfortunately, the end of October very likely doesn't mean nothing here - 1809 was already officially released (Oct 2), now it's "only" paused :/
