soo... basically, my windows 10 was extremely fucked so i couldn't even start the computer properly so we decided to reinstall windows 10

my C: and D: drives got cleaned in the process and merged into one 500 gb drive (they were just that 500 gb drive split in 2). my gaming drive (the drive where i kept steam and all my games) was fine. but osu! was in my c: drive so it got cleaned too.

about 3500 maps just got obliterated. i know i can recover most of them since i downloaded them, but my entire mapping history lies in those 3500 maps. every project i did, whether it's released or not, got deleted.

i had 4 mapping projects i was planning to release. one of them being a 10 minute compilation map i completed about %60 of. they got fucked.

i don't know if i should start mapping again. i do have comet but i already had an update and a new difficulty for that. so that got fucked in the ass too, i guess.

Photoshop? Every single thing i downloaded? All pictures i saved? All the music i used for my maps? NAHHH FUCK THOSE TOO

i don't know if i'm making this too much of a big deal. i'm just really sad that all my maps got deleted. i had no choice too. windows wouldn't download on that drive so i needed to clean and convert it.

When I used Windows, I never install or save anything in my Windows installation drive. I remember the C drive only 100 GB.

before reinstalling, I would've tried restoring it to a previous point first to see if the problem would be gone (you might lose some files in the process, but better than losing all of them).

If you need to reinstall an OS, you will almost definitely wipe your drive clean

I mean, you can install an OS (I'm only sure for Windows, idk for other operating systems) without wiping the drive clean (the files are transferred in windows.old) - I've done that so many times.

not recommended tho, better to wipe it before installing it.

First I lose my PC. Then you lose your data and Zelzatter breaks his arm.

yep. I think Windows 10 still has that function (I remember installing Windows 10 in my dad's PC from a bootable USB, I didn't format his C: drive and all the contents there went to Windows.old)

the win7 era?

Are you implying that there are other os eras in which an os was created that is better than windows 7? No. I am still on windows 7. God bless windows 7.

despite switching over to 10, I still like 7 because I can run old-ass games on it.

There's dual boot solution.

well, I think going dual boot Windows 7/10 for my main PC would be kind of a waste of storage, as I will use 10 99.99% of the time.

the only reason why I'm thinking of building a retro PC is not because I actually see myself playing old games regularly, but because I just like to build stuff.
