Windows 10 update version 1809 was the update that cased the issues of data loss as reported by several users. Users reported missing files soon after the Windows 10 systems were updated through its automatic Update system.

For some users who experienced data loss as they saw documents and photos, user profiles being wiped out. Behemoth of users stormed Social media platform to complain about this error/bug on the Microsoft support site as the issue seems to be grievous to some.

Data loss is indeed something to rant about.
