My Windows 8 broken down - after the blue logo showed, the screen was just black. I decided to refresh the installation, it went well and the Windows started as a fresh installation (no configuration there, etc.)
All files were moved to Windows.old. There were all directories I had on C drive - Downloads, Program Files, etc. I run one app in directory Windows.old/Program Files to ensure it works well.
I set the PC to sleep, and when I woke it up, I found out that almost all directories from the Windows.old are gone (I didn't do anything). And it seems that all directories which were in Windows.old moved to C drive, so now I have back my Downloads directory in C, my desktop icons, settings, etc.
That should be great, but programs from Program Files are gone. It was somehow deleted, but I don't understand why, because before it worked ok. Is it possible to recover those files that were in windows.old/Program Files/ ..?
They aren't in recycle bin, I'm trying to recover them somehow now.
