Even though Windows 10 has been out in the wild for quite some time, Microsoft continues to struggle with countless bugs, errors, and critical system problems. With the most recent setback forcing Microsoft to pull the 1809 feature update from rollout because of personal file deletion issues.

While the deletion of personal files was the main reason for 1809 being pulled, there are quite a lot of other issues that have also been discovered which have pushed the release of 1809 back even further. Although the main focus of late has been version 1809 and personal file deletion, there are a few far less fatal, yet equally annoying problems still present in the current release.

The most notable of which seems to prevent the Windows 10 clock from updating time changes automatically and correctly. Changes such as the clock moving backwards an hour for the impending winter months or the clock moving forward for summers arrival. For most people, the change didn’t take place correctly if their computer was off at the time of the official time change. If a computer was on during the hour change, everything seems to have been business as usual.  

Although it’s too late to unwind the confusion of past failed time changes, it’s still a good idea to fix the cause of the issue so it doesn’t happen again. That being said, let’s hope that Microsoft fixes the problem officially in the meantime.
