1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    Hi,
    I got a new PC recently and I upgraded it to W10. I copied all files that I had from old PC into the new one, and I named the file "Windows.old".

    Recently, everything had gone. Absolutly everything...
    I did some research, in the meantime and I found about that "windows.old" issue that is been around for the new users of Windows 10.
    Is there anything I can do to recover the files that, for me were not to be deleted?
    Thanks in advance.

    little bit silly naming it the same as windows would use as a temp upgrade. Personally would have called it something else. doubt the files are recoverable unless you run recovery software on the drive and see if it returns.

    Yes, "little bit silly", as you said. At the time, I had no idea that this was a temp file from Windows.
    I'm running recuva as we speak as it's the only free recovery software I could find.
    Any others you could advice me?

    Thanks
