Latest Windows 10 Update Deletes Files

Earlier this week, Microsoft issued its latest Windows update as part of its new April

2021 list of updates. This introduced Windows 10 KB5001330 for version 20H2/2004,

which was intended to fix difficulties caused by the previous update, which broke

relationships with printers. Unsurprisingly, a number of users have begun recording

problems with the new update as well. Some have even said that the update itself

can’t be placed on some systems. These problems are frequently happening on

Surface Studio 2 and Surface Pro 7. Users have said that the update install keeps

resting at 20%, 70%, and then it breaks once it reaches 100%.

According to Reddit threads, the new update is also producing difficulties in

gaming. Video games are reportedly suffering issues of graphical stuttering,

significant reductions in frame rates, and even completely crashing. It was also

making blue screens for several. Some older bugs made another appearance

with this update. A ‘Temporary User’ bug that first reported in 2020 was found

again which would make files and settings vanish and force users to switch to

guest forms to recover them. Thankfully, however, this a rare problem that reported

by only a few. Some users discovered that operating back to previous updates

completely restored their systems to a usable state. Microsoft is yet to comment on

the issue, but we suggest avoiding the latest patch altogether.
