Restoring from Windows.old folder
An old guy ended up reinstalling Windows 8 by mistake from a disk after he was using Windows 10 for a while

Now he can't find his files, but there is a folder called Windows.old which seems to have his stuff

How do I get Windows 8 to reinstall the W10 from that folder ?

Recovery ??

Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery > under Go back to my previous version of Windows 10, click Get started.

Ah - Wins 8 is installed with probably Win10 on the .old folder

Dont think Wins 8 has a recovery option does it ??
