    Where Does The Windows 8.1 Data Go?


    So I've just downloaded windows 8.1 through store and it won't install because i think the file is corrupted. When i retry downloading it always want to use that corrupted file. Where can i find the 8.1 data and delete it?

    Do you have an old restore point before you tried to download 8.1 ?

    It seems it save insides Windows Store cache (Not so sure though). To fix it simply use wsreset.exe ^_^
