    I started the Windows 8.1 download through the Windows Store last night, and when I woke up, Windows 8.1 was already installed!

    WTF?

    How do I get my upgrade ISO file?

    What were you running before, 8.1 preview or 8?

    It's not available for Store Upgrade

    only for Standalone using WindowsSetupBox.exe

    Was there some kind of timer that I didn't see while I was asleep that defaulted to just installing the update without any user input provided?

    i update from store, but can't find the download location to backup, and yes, it instal w/out any user input, only need to accept the EULA at the end of install.

    Its creates a Windows.old folder (i think in case if you com back to windows 8 or 8.1 preview)
