Hi Arsi786,

download a fresh copy of W10 and start an install, when asked for the key; click on "I don't have a key" and continue, select your C:/ drive for the install but DON'T FORMAT THE PARTITION!, do the full install and you should (all being well) find your files in the folder called "Windows.old" once you finish, you can copy them back into your new installations user folder.

Always back up your data to an external drive for safe keeping!.

See here for install instructions and use "Upgrade":

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD EXACTLY THE SAME VERSION OF WINDOWS THAT YOU HAVE INSTALLED. If you currently have Windows 10, 64 Bit English, then download that version, if you have a different version, make sure it is correct before you start your install otherwise you will have problems with the licence key post install!. :)
