    Hello, today I upgraded to windows 8.1. It asked me if I wanted to keep personal files but I said keep nothing. Finally done with instalation, come to find out everything is still on all my hard drives. All 3 of them. (2 SSD's) and 1 HDD. Should it be like this?

    It all depends on how your OS was set up - If you had folders added to your Libraries on the 2 other drives, then those would stay and only the link in the Library would vanish.

    You could wipe all 3 drives and do a fresh install...
