I had Windows 8 and took the free upgrade to Windows 10. I have never cared for it and today I had some more problems with it. While in Settings (which is dangerous territory for me) I saw that I could "restore" to a previous setting. Before I knew it, I had removed Windows 10 and was "restored" to Windows 8. I am fine with that, but, I have also lost all my photos. Can I get the photos back  somehow?  Please help.

 

Thank you.

DennisO

Hello,

It may worth the time to see if there's a Windows.old folder on the "C" drive and look to see what's in it.

Thank you for the suggestion. I checked the C drive but couldn't find anything that helped. I may download the new and improved  Windows 10 and see if the pictures return.

Hello,

A shot in the dark but I would consider trying recuva before you do anything else,

After using Recuva, try installing Everything Search.

Let it run after install so it can build it's index. Usually take 20-30 seconds.

Next enter ext:jpg in the search bar. It will display all the jpg files on your computer. If you had photos in other formats, try them as well.

ext:bmp  ext:gif  ext:png  etc.
