    Upgrade to 8.1 process

    I upgraded to Windows 8.1 through the Windows updates. Does it download somewhere on my computer so I can save the file if i need to reinstall later? I looked and can't find it. If I ever need to reinstall Windows would I install Version 8.0 from the disc I purchased and then install updates?
