    Welcome to Ten-Forums !
    Been awhile for me since the upgrade to recall any issues. You upgraded directly to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 or 8 Pro ? Are you asking how to find and recover those files ? Always need to backup all important files whenever upgrading to another OS and even on a regular basis in case of Hard drive failure. If you did not run any disk cleanup, look for a folder on the C: drive called Windows.old, may be still in there.
    I know you misplaced your files.

    Glad you find them. Once you get everything reorganized, definitely time to back them up, or better yet start doing image backups to an external hard drive.
