Installing a custom version of Windows 10. Choose Custom to completely replace your current operating system, or to install Windows 10 on a specific drive or partition that you select. You can also use Custom if your computer does not have an operating system, or if you want to set up a multiboot system on your computer.
Back up your files before you begin reinstalling Windows 10 if possible, even if you're reinstalling Windows 10 on a hard disk partition, and you have personal files on a separate partition. For example, if you have encrypted files, you might not be able to access them after reinstalling Windows 10. A custom installation replaces the current version of Windows 10 and all personal files.
If you delete or format a partition that contains a version of Windows, all data on the partition is permanently deleted. However, if there is an existing copy of Windows on the partition you selected, but you do not format or delete the partition, user files are saved to a Windows.old folder on the partition, which you can browse to after the installation completes. However, you should still back up your user files before performing a custom installation. For example, if you have encrypted files, you might not be able to access them after installing Windows. If you’ve backed up your user files and then restored them after installing Windows 10, you can delete the Windows.old folder.
