    Hello my friend,
    It is only possible if you have reformat your system and installed windows 8 on it.
    You can retrieve your files from the Windows.old folder.
    to do these follow these steps:->


    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Search (or if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search), enter Computer in the search box, tap or click Apps, and then tap or click Computer.
    • Double-tap or double-click the drive that Windows is installed on (typically, the C: drive).
    • Double-tap or double-click the Windows.old folder.
    • Double-tap or double-click the Users folder.
    • Double-tap or double-click your user name.
    • Open the folders that contain the files you want to retrieve. For example, to retrieve files in the Documents library, double-click Documents.
    • Copy and paste the files that you want from each folder to a folder in Windows 8 Release Preview.
    • Repeat steps 5-7 for each user account on your computer.

      ALL THE BEST.
