    I didn't have that option and the windows updates were turned off and couldn't modify it (weird).

    I downloaded the iso build 10041 and installed it from the current build, i didn't do a clean install. I installed it over the one i had and it had the option to save files and settings so now i'm back to normal.
    Thank you for the answers.

    The only downside of upgrading any build of the tech preview is that, almost always, it kills some features after the upgrade. That's why I don't personalize it too much so that I don't have to worry about doing a clean install on every build.
