    Where is the download stored of windows 8.1


    Hi I have downloaded and installed Windows 8.1 using the App store. Everything went well, no problems. During the install one of the messages said that you could backup the download.But I can't find where it has been stored. Does this mean that if I need to do a re-install I would have to use the Windows 8 DVD and then re download 8.1 ?

    I would also like to know if the download is saveable. I'm on a limited download connection and have 2 windows 8 licences so I would like to only do this the once, and know where it is before I start.

    I just finished downloading it from Windows Store and got the message that I need to restart my computer..
    Looks like the installer is saved on C:\$Windows.~BT

    I upgraded to 8.1 without issues, but tried the setup.exe in the $Window.~BT folder to see if I would be able to use that directory for a future re-install, if needed.

    The setup opened to the blue Windows rectangle, but after a few moments I had an error message saying the install could not continue and to try rebooting and try again. So I won't be fooling with this again for fear of messing up my good install.

Hi I'm using a App called Quicknote. I'd like to sync the notes with another computer but I don't find the storage folder. The same with other Apps. If I know the folder, syncing with Dropbox or something similar should be no problem. So, anyone knows the location? Thanks
