    Images in Win 8.1

    I had a number of albums and images on board in Win8. I upgraded to Win10 yesterday and the albums/images did not make the trip,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,is there a way to retrieve them or are they gone for good. Yea I know I should have backed them up.

    They should be in the window.old file. Look in the root directory of C: (or whatever your systemroot drive is.

    An update would have moved all of those into your new "Pictures" folder, when you updated did you choose "Custom Install" or did you choose "Update"? Cos Custom Install is basically "Wipe Everything and install fresh".

    The way to find out is, are any of your previously installed Programs still installed? If they are, then it must have been a glitch during Update, and your images will indeed be in the Windows.Old folder, under "Users".
