Few people actually need MS Word, if they are using free open-source LibreOffice. Why do you?
So I had this laptop that i bought 4 yrs back, which came with win7 pre installed. I upgraded to win 8 wen it came for about INR800. Which made my laptop horrible. then 8.1 was a bit of relief.
then came 10 and surprisingly it had no issues with drivers etc like 7to8
I thot maybe microsoft had done it this time.
I have been using it since and have felt 10 is indeed nicely built.
So 6 month back i downloaded MS Office *from Torrents*
2013 initially and 2016 later
So they were in my "profile/Downloads/Setups/" location
Last month my HDD failed so i took all backup before it failed and got myself a new one and restored all my data.
Since i did a clean install i had to reinstall everything.
So when i go looking for office 2016 setup somehow its just disappeared. Mind you all my other files are just there. So i see 2013 setup and tell myself na 2013 is too boring and i dont install it.
yesterday i needed word really bad and decided to install 2013 temporarily. I go to my setup folder and boom that has disappeared as well.
I mean when i read about MS spying on you etc i did not believe it so much, but now i know
So when they found these setups on my system they deleted them without my knowledge.
And if they can see my files i mean they can see all I do.
Mind you the files were not office 2013 or 2016 they were some random names that i usually give as an habit.
I also checked the defender logs to see if that deleted my files but no, no logs there as well.
What do you guys think?
