Windows 10 cumulative update for the Fall Creators Update bumps the build number up to 16299.726 (KB4462918), bringing security updates to several components of the OS.
This fixed version of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update is first being made available to Insiders for final testing and after analyzing the feedback and data from the Insider community, Windows 10 October 2018 Update will be re-released to the general public soon.

Today, Microsoft is releasing a fixed version of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to Windows Insiders for the critical deletion bug. Alternatively, you can manually download these files from Microsoft Update Catalog.

Microsoft on Tuesday offered an explanation, an apology and a future resolution for its flawed Windows 10 version 1809 release last week, which caused files to go missing for some users. During this process the system prompts the user and asks if they would like to move the files to the new location.
As Microsoft's John Cable explains in a post on Microsoft's Windows Blog, the problem was with the "Known Folder Redirection" feature. While we can not guarantee the outcome of any file recovery work, if you have manually checked for updates and believe you have an issue with missing files, please minimize your use of the affected device and contact us directly at +1-800-MICROSOFT or find a local number in your area.
Now users can include a note about impact and severity when they're reporting something in the feedback hub, so that the test team isn't just flooded with fan requests for a hotly-discussed feature when a more major issue is going unnoticed.
