    viewing existing files after Windows 10 upgrade


    I just upgraded our oldest PC(an HP Pavilion dv7) from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

    Now, all I see is a single profile at the Login window. It is an Administrator account.

    I can find previously-existing data files(Microsoft Publisher file, etc) using File Explorer, but it says I cannot open them.

    What do I need to do to access data files which existed when this PC was still Windows 7?

    Thanks in advance.

    I understand 1 or more user accounts are missing.

    Missing User Account After Windows 10 Upgrade - Microsoft Community

    Rexator's post here may help.

    I searched for
    "accounts missing after upgrade to windows 10"

    There are plenty of reports of this, it seems.
