    I had the missing folder pain issue in Outlook 2013. Not knowing what patch caused it I ended up just uninstalling and then reinstalling office 2013. I had only just installed it with a clean install of Windows 8.1 RTM and hit Windows update. Now that I know what likely caused it I'll just block those two updates. I think one of them failed anyway.

    At least we know it's just incompetence and not some crazy marketing idea to botch older patches vs. newer.

    Well don't know about just W8, the same 3 updates are doing the same thing on my Vista 32 bit machine, along with my W8 x64 machine , So I don't pin it on W8, its the damned updates themselves, this has happened before with other updates.

    In my patch Tuesday updates the following one for Office repeatedly failed until I realized it was already installed successfully earlier on, so have now hidden it.

    How to Remove Any Botched Windows Update Released by Microsoft – Guide

    Unfortunately for many consumers out there, Microsoft doesn’t seem to spend so much time testing the updates it’s releasing on Patch Tuesday, so many users are in the end forced to deal with all kinds of errors caused by botched fixes.

    This is the case of this month’s security updates, as some bulletins released today are said to be causing havoc on basically all Windows versions currently on the market, including XP, Vista, 7, 8, and even the new 8.1.

    While some claim that the botched updates are breaking down a number of Office tools, others reveal that the same patches are trying to install over and over again, even if the initial setup seems to work just fine.

    I believe that link will only show installed updates, not failed updates.
    The only way I have found in the past, is to uninstall the registry of updates. This will leave you with a blank history in the "Windows update - View update history", but you can still see the history in the Control Panel - programs and features option.

    Microsoft pulls buggy Outlook 2013 update

    Microsoft has pulled the update which caused problems for many users of Outlook 2013 from Windows Update.

    The update description page ("Description of the Office 2013 update: September 10, 2013") does not mention the withdrawal of the update. The revision number for the document is still 1.0 and the links to the standalone installers for the update are still present. The files are still available for download.

    I have Outlook 2003 and it is not affecting it. I have the 2007 Office Updates as I have some add on converters installed that are 2007.
