    Windows Hides My Old Data

    IS hiding your Desktop app icons from Windows 7 along with pictures a hidden feature in 10? I have installed Windows 10 Pro thru my upgrade and all of my Desktop app icons and pictures/videos were all hidden. I just went into folder options and unhid everything. Wasn't sure if this was normal behavior after an upgrade?

    For the my Windows 8.1 Prof upgrade to Windows 10 Prof on two different machines, the Windows 8.1 Desktop icons were not migrated to the new Desktop! I simply copied the desktop icons I wanted from windows.old folder.

    But for Windows 7 Home/SP1 migration to Windows 10, it copies the desktop icons from Windows 7 desktop over correctly.

    Just a simple observation!
