    Hi

     

    Your personal files, like letters you have typed, some settings etc.  usually I look at, and then copy onto a large USB stick my user Settings.  C:\Users\

    This can be re-loaded into a new installation, not the best method but effective.

     

    Then I would goto the ACER website and download and save all the files for my particular model, that is the docs and drivers.

     

    Once I was happy with that I could use the ACER recovery method OR download and create my own Windows 10 installation disk from here....

    IF your acer was loaded with W8.x and did the free upgrade then it will be registered with Microsoft and a new install will be validated after a few hours/days.

     

    The above is my way, you need to work out step by step your method, and if you do write it down longhand on a piece of paper.

     

    If in doubt please ask.
