Default Lose all folders and widgets after update

Hi guys, why is it that whenever my stick Note 3 receives a software update after restart all of the apps that I had in folders are removed and scatted across multiple pages. Also some of my widgets get deleted?

Any idea how I can prevent this from happening?

Update: Ok guys I know thing this issue maybe due to booting into safe mode rather than a softwatr update.

When I updated to the new patch my phone rebooted into safe mode at first.

I have read similar experiences from others online where their widgets are deleted after booting into safe mode.

Does anyone jnow why this happens???

To my knowledge this bug is as old as Touchwiz itself.
