The latest update for Windows 10 is the gift that just keeps on giving; for those for whom snark is a joy to express. The October 2018 Update, aka Build 1809, was pulled after users expressed a surprising dislike of having their files deleted without their consent and from the results of those testing the new build, that feature is still present. That hasn't stopped Microsoft's innovations however as the new build also expresses an extreme dislike of mapped network drives. As you should obviously be using SharePoint Online, which doesn't function well as a mapped folder or drive by design, this should obviously not be a problem.
Strangely, The Inquirer and various Microsoft users do not appreciate this new feature for some reason and have expressed some disappointment. There is no fix as of yet, nor will there be for quite some time, apart from avoiding the update like you would a homeopath's office.
"This borkage isn't quite so bad – but it's enough to be a huge problem for sysadmins, SMBs and in fact, anyone with a NAS drive, because mapping of network drives is still not working properly."
