I had Windows 7 Home Prem OA on a laptop Asus K52F. Then, months ago I upgraded to Windows 10 10240 build. It was good but became slow using Chrome, etc. Well, I saw the possibility to go to the new Windows Ten w10. But here, Brazil on 11/27/2015, it still had no upgrade. Well, so I downloaded MediaCreationTool.exe and installed the Windows 10 Version 1511 Build 10586, codenamed Threshold 2. OK, it worked fine and fast.
On Saturday 11/28/2015, Th2 began to bother me with messages: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item". Then I remember that I used Tweaking.com - Windows Repair software... Well, I tried to see the log etc. I had no time so I decided to re-install Windows 10 TH2 - here is the mess... I used some code to give me permission all files etc, but it keeps me showing that message.
I remember that I pressed F8 key (I activated), I went to something like repair, reset windows... I'm sure I selected KEEP MY FILES. I think it was like "reset windows and keep my files...". It worked well, IT KEPT ME ALL THE FILES, BUT THE SOFTWARE WERE NOT THERE ANY MORE! Just after it I understand that reset is like RESET THE WINDOWS NOT REINSTALL THE WINDOWS. Maybe it's my bad, but I think it needs to be clearer...
I want to downgrade Windows TH2 to Windows TH2, hehehe. Cause I have Windows.old and Windows.old(2). I tried F8 and go back to the last build but show me: "We ran into a problem and won't be able to take you back to the previous build. Try resetting your current build instead. troubleshoot > reset this PC". Windows.old(2) was like empty, just like a folder and subfolder in line, not a lot. The size was like 5k... Windows.old that is wiht a lot of files. Then I deleted Windows.old(2) to try. I used F8, selected restore etc and gave me the same message: "We ran into..."
Well, now the question is: I have the Windows.old with a lot of files and my softwares. Can I restore this Windows 10 TH2 in this case?
Sorry if this text is bad. Please correct my English and give me some idea...
Thank you for your time.
