Considering that so many are having some issues with
updates/upgrades here is a MS way to Recovery what you had...
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

Configures the recovery image Windows uses to refresh your PC.
RECIMG.EXE <command> <arguments>
The recimg.exe command line tool lets you configure a custom recovery image
for Windows to use when you refresh your PC. When you create a custom
recovery image, it will contain the desktop apps you've installed, and the
Windows system files in their current state. Recovery images do not contain
your documents, personal settings, user profiles, or apps from Windows Store,
because that information is preserved at the time you refresh your PC.
When you create a custom recovery image, recimg will store it in the
specified directory, and set it as the active recovery image. If a custom
recovery image is set as the active recovery image, Windows will use it when
you refresh your PC. You can use the /setcurrent and /deregister options to
select which recovery image Windows will use. All recovery images have the
filename CustomRefresh.wim. If no CustomRefresh.wim file is found in the
active recovery image directory, Windows will fall back to the default image
(or to installation media) when you refresh your PC.
Note that you cannot reset your PC using a custom recovery image. Custom
recovery images can only be used to refresh your PC.
The following commands can be specified:
Captures a new custom recovery image in the location specified by
<directory>, and sets it as the active recovery image.
Sets the active recovery image to the CustomRefresh.wim file in the
location specified by <directory>. Windows will use this image when you
refresh your PC, even if a recovery image provided by your PC's
manufacturer is present.
Deregisters the current custom recovery image. If a recovery image
provided by your PC's manufacturer is present, Windows will use that
image when you refresh your PC. Otherwise, Windows will use your
installation media when you refresh your PC.
Displays the path to the directory in which the current active recovery
image is stored.
Displays this help text.
Takes a bit of time, but it does work... I use this for my Windows 8.1. Info taken from
