Yet again, Microsoft has had to confirm another issue regarding its Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
According to M. Hammer, a Microsoft Agent and Community Moderator, “If you copy files from a .ZIP file without extracting them, they might not be copied or moved correctly, even though it looks like they have been.”
There appears to be another known issue with the October 2018 Update the consent prompt for placing unzipped files is missing and results in either misplaced content or no placement at all despite the operation appearing to be complete.
This failure can occur in the following scenarios:
Copying from a compressed (.zip) folder to a regular folder.
Moving from a compressed folder to a regular folder.
Copying from a compressed folder to a protected folder.
