    New "Azure" user that wiped all my programs!?

    Recently while I was working on my laptop it just froze and I shut it down using the power button.
    After the reboot two options appeared on my screen:
    1)Join Azure Active Directory
    2)Join a local Active Directory domain
    I chose the second one and now it looks like a fresh windows install, with all my apps and programs gone. It even asks me to login using my Microsoft pass instead of the PIN I was using before. What can I do to restore it? Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the TenForums @maicanvlad7

    If it was a true clean install then your data is very likely gone.

    Is you click Start > Settings > Update and security > Recovery

    If this was some sort of upgrade there should be an option to go back to a previous version of Windows 10.

    Might I suggest you you at Macrium Reflect. Free, reliable and member recommended. With this you can take Images of your system and it is a quick restore to fallback.
