    The driver that is required was actually released on August 29. Not to confused with the driver update released on October 1st. That said, it's possible that they made a mistake in the article or some other anomaly.

    I've got macrium reflect to do a weekly backup of the entire C drive every sunday at 2 am, so even if that happens i can max lose a weeks worth. Though i probably won't let it even download until a saturday or sunday. (got updates postponed via GPE). That way i've got full control on what gets installed and when

    The My Document folder would be in the Windows.old folder if it did get erased.

    Nope, not according to the Reddit topics linked in the myce post. It's completely replaced with a clean copy or permanently deleted. Users checked Windows.old nothing was there

    It's just a problem(potentially) with the Documents folder only and not any of the other Libraries? I just copied my Documents folder over to a network location just in case, I haven't received or forced the update yet.

    Neowin has an editorial article discussing both issues plus a Task Manager bug.

    Read the Reddit topics, I believe some say it's NOT confined to just the documents folder

    The upgrade didn't wipe my documents folder on the PC I finished up-dating, one is currently being updated with a third pending, but if it had I do a daily mirror image of the boot hard-drive(s) so restoring back to before I manually applied the update is easy.

    The only bad thing about my back-up schemes and the software I use it creates additional backup sets when there is a major update to Windows like this one.

    Ain't PCs grand? It's almost as if they are the masters and we are the slaves. ;)

    I've re-titled the thread. It's now inclusive of all issues for the Windows 10 1809 update.

    I updated my Acer laptop to Build 1809

    My documents were no longer in their prior location

    I found them at the below location!

    Acer/Users/*****/Documents

    Update: Now my documents are available at their original location. When I checked right after updating to 1809 my documents folder showed as empty.

    Even Forbes is posting articles about the 1809 update:

    Forbes: Avoid Windows 10 October Update Until You Do One Thing

    The lost Documents folder issue is discussed and Task Manager bug. No mention of the Intel audio driver, however. There was also mention of an NVIDIA driver problem.

    The latest driver? Which driver? That leaves me wondering if this is occurring with the 416.16 drivers given they were released on October 4th or the previous drivers. Given the date of the tweet I really don't know for sure. The 416.16 drivers do directly address 1809 compatibility as per the release notes.

    I did 2 updates on different desktops and everything was transferred. Its probably specific manufacturers issue.
