    Yeah, i did.
    Windows 8.1 which you download from Windows Store is an upgrade. Your files and applications are not going to be deleted.

    Hi it worked great tip for any one reading don't do a windows 8 refresh
    Or you will need to do boot camp all over again like I did
    Says it keeps your files yeh but that's it removes boot camp all your programs
    And internet & wifi settings

    Yep. First one failed with error
    Second time failed with error
    Third time failed with error
    I had to install new video drivers direct from Nvidia and I had to do it in safe mode - which was a little more involved than I'd hoped.
    I also disabled Windows Firewall and Windows Defender.

    Once I did this the upgrade went fine.
