I recently did a Windows 8 PC refresh, hoping it would solve an issue I'm having, which it didn't. Now I'm hoping there's an easy solution for undoing the refresh.
Is there an easy way to recover any installed programs from the Windows.old folder? I'm hoping to not have to reinstall all the programs, especially seeing as I'd like to keep the settings and configurations for them from before the refresh. Is it possible? Or any suggestions to make it work somehow?
Best I can think of is if it comes to it: Reinstall programs and then copy the old programs over to restore configurations and so on. Still not ideal but I assume it should work?
