Info for all cases (for example, system crash):
Back up your files before you begin reinstalling Windows 10 if possible, even if you're reinstalling Windows 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. A custom installation replaces the current version of Windows 10 and all personal files.
