What Happen to Windows Old File?

  Hera99 22:37 15 Sep 2015

What happen to your "Windows Old" files from previous installation if you downgrade back from windows 10 to windows 8.1 Then reinstall windows 8.1 then select "Just remove my files" as oppose to"fully clean the drive" option when reinstalling windows 8.1 to permanently delete all personal files, (documents, photos, music, video). Does windows re-installation automatically create a Windows old files where personal files can be retrieved despite having selecting remove all my files even though you selected "just remove my files"?
