    Hmm im still on w7, but I've played around with 8/8.1... So you're trying to reset basically? The best thing to do would be to make a partition of your c drive and then later restore that if the system has deleted your files

    PC Settings > Update and recovery > Recovery. You should find the settings you need there. If you suspect that this is a problem with your C:/ directory, move all of the files that you need from there.

    REFRESH: No files nor modern apps should be lost - legacy programs like Google Chrome will be uninstalled.

    Still a good practice to back stuff up, whether to OneDrive, Copy, a hard drive...

    RESET: nukes everything from orbit

    Nope not at all you won't lose your files.

    But its no excuse to not back up your files, do it!
    Computer hardware eventually fails, whether in 10 months, 10 years, or longer. There are too many horror stories out there. Just syncing to OneDrive should suffice or just copying mission critical stuff to an inexpensive flash drive.
