    Trying to Recover files. I can see them but not find them.

    I was looking for a forum for OneDrive but don't see one...
    Sorry; I'm new around here!

    I had a computer completely die (won't boot, Hard Drive won't spin).
    I have a backup from April but would like to find newer the files if I can!

    I had upgraded the old one to Windows 10 and when I log in on the NEW computer
    I see the images from the old dead one. It gives me hope that the files
    were saved, but I cannot find them on OneDrive.

    Where can these files be coming from?

    OneDrive only shows files you have synced from your devices or uploaded manually. In OneDrive you arte not seeing what's on your PC. Use File Explorer to search for your files. If the system was updated, look for a "Windows.old" folder in the C drive. All of your user data should be stored there. Check your Users folder too, for any leftover user files from previous accounts.
