    Windows 8.1


    hi,

    I appreciate your time over this topic.

    as i have upgraded to windows 8.1 and now as you are suggesting to format the windows... I just want to know that i had created the windows image before upgrading, so if i use that image would i lose all the new software i have installed?

    And also i want to know is there any help topic which can guide me to do this and if possible the best way to keep the existing applications.

    thanks and regards

    The image would return you to how your system was when created. Anything installed or saved after the image was created will be lost. You would want to back up anything that you do not want to lose to be safe.

    Yeah i guessed so.

    But can you tell me how to back up as i don't want to get into creating new image. Just want to create back for certain folders and applications.. Is that possible?

    Thanks

    Apps and programs would have to be reinstalled, but you could manually copy and paste folders to back them up if there's not to many.
