Why Microsoft Released Windows 10 Version 1809 with a Critical File Removal Bug

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018 Update) early last month but pulled it only a few days later after discovering a critical bug causing the removal of files in user libraries, like the Documents folder.

While Microsoft conducted its very own internal investigation, users discovered that the issue had actually been reported in the Feedback Hub several times before the launch of the October update.

Needless to say, many believed that Microsoft simply ignored these reports and the company didn’t care about feedback shared by insiders.

According to a new report from WindowsCentral citing internal company sources, what happened was actually Microsoft mistaking the reported bug for another.

In other words, there were two issues in the October update with a similar behavior and Microsoft tried to fix just one of them, thinking the other is exactly.
