Update KB4494441 MEGASync bug

If you installed the update KB4494441, you may have a problem with MEGASync.

Some Microsoft users who installed the latest Windows 10 v1809 updates reported that MEGASync is being reset after the update. Here is what one of them had to say:

I wonder what this actualization did for my files being uploaded, all of the sudden after a restart for windows update, are now reset from their progression, MEGASync was not actualized before or after this occurred, is there someone with the same issue? What can I do so this won’t happen again in the future?

As you can see from this description, the bug appeared immediately after the update restarted the computer.

Also, the user mentions that the tool was not actualized before or after the issue. So, by exclusion, the culprit might be KB4494441.

The same user reported that his/her files were packed in a large compressed file, so the progression was lost. Therefore, the issue might be very serious causing users to lose data.

How to fix this issue?

In other words, if the latest Windows 10 v1809 updates caused this problem with your MEGASync, you may want to switch to another similar program from this list.

If you don’t want to install a different file sync solution, you can simply uninstall KB4494441.

Until now, Microsoft didn’t come with a solution for fix issue.
