Latest October feature update resetted and wiped things that weren't supposed to be wiped. How to bring them back?

In particular:

- Task scheduler tasks have been brought back to default values, history has been wiped and turned off

- All past events viewable through Event Viewer have been wiped

- System restore has been shut off and all restore points removed

- Windows update shows no updates in update history other than "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1809 Successfully installed on ‎03/‎10/‎2018" meaning that all past updates history has been removed.

Feature update is similar to installing a whole new OS. Whatever you see is expected as SYstem files are written from scratch.

That goes the same with WU History as well, there is no point in showing older cumulative updates that are not applicable to this version.
