On 3-12-2019 i ran the 4 updates from microsoft that were essential. Upon rebooting the updates caused my computer to lose all data in the win 8 folders i made in my computer. I tried rebooting a couple times with no change. I then did a restore to the last version of restore which did not work( restore date 2-18-2019). So i tried a second restore except this time i restored back to 2-14-2019 and i finally got all my files back. Stranger thing was that even pictures i downloaded on 3-11-2019 was restored back to my computer. So now i am backing all my windows folders to DVD's so i don't lose anything. The good thing is that i backup all new data to DVD's every first day of the month, so i will not have to backup all the data.

Now i am afraid to run the updates because i am the admin to some forums and really need to be on them daily. I do not need a complete failure of the OS. I also do NOT like the way windows 10 works and am avoiding using it. I have it on 2 laptops with Win 10 on them and it's the Pits trying to use them.

I wish i could find a way to avoid these problems.
