    Documents deleted after update

    Hi all,

    I have just updated Windows 10 to Version 1511 Build 10586.36, and files stored locally in My Documents have disappeared. Photos are still there but documents are nowhere to be found. Has anyone else had this?

    OK may have posted too soon - i've found my documents. Looks like if you click on My Documents in File Explorer, it seems to take you to a different storage area compared with C:\Users\User\Documents...if you root around in that directory, the files are there. No idea why this has happened but seems pretty ridiculous.
