Accidently deleted Windows.old folder after a restore and need it back

I did a restore on Windows 8, got a Windows.old folder. While I was trying to figure out what to do with the folder it is now gone. I need documents, pictures, etc. in that folder! How can I get it back!

  1. You could try any of the file recovery applications....Recuva, perhaps.
    But for the whole of the windows.old to find a few specific files? I'd not hold out any hope. None at all.
  2. Do you have Windows 7 Home or Pro? I bellieve that 7 Pro has and maybe Home also, has the Previous versions tab.

    Try right-clicking on your C:\ and then on Previous Versions (If it is available).
