Windows 10’s seemingly never-ending run of faulty updates is continuing to impact users, with reports emerging that Windows 10 KB4532693 is deleting files on some people’s PCs.
We’ve previously reported that KB4532693 was causing some serious issues for Windows 10 users, with people’s Start menus and desktops reverting to their default states.
However, it seems that issue is even more serious than first thought, as it appears that it is deleting any files saved on the desktop as well.
Some people have been able to restore their files – it appears the update is renaming and moving their user profile – but it seems that many people have found they are unable to restore the files that were deleted.
While changing the user profile back to its default settings is annoying, if an update is faulty enough that it’s actually deleting users’ files, then this is very serious indeed.
