    My computer reset back to Windows 8 from W 8.1 and i deleted files. Can I recover them? Or are they gone forever?
    Also, could I get Windows 10?

    It may still be possible to recover files from that hard drive with something like Get Data Back from here
    It's not free but I've used it and it does work.
    Of course the less you use the computer before attempting any such data recovery the better.
    I do not believe that there is a direct upgrade path from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
    I believe that you have to be running Windows 8.1 with Update to qualify for the free upgrade to Windows 10.
