    What version will I recover?

    When I purchased my Laptop it came with Windows 8 Home.
    Subsequently via updates, it was upgraded to Windows 8.1 Home.
    It was then updated with free upgrade to Windows 10 Home.
    If I "recovered/reset" my Laptop, which version would it recover to?
    Thank you and regards,
    John P.

    Hello, it depends what sort of recovery you are referring to.
    1. If you still have the manufacturer's recovery partition present, and were able to make use of it, that would restore your PC to the state as bought.
    2. If you are referring to Win 10 refresh/reset then you will be dealing only with Win 10.

    3. If it's more than 30 days since you upgraded to 10, then your Windows.old created when you upgraded to '10 - your Win 8.1- will have been deleted.
