    From Linux it shows as a shortcut that doesn't exist - I have to say that it looks like it really doesn't exist!
    But it is strange that the folder and files were there before I switched to Windows 10
    If you made a image backup 1st, or before you upgraded, you will still have all those files. I have always made image backups before making any changes, or upgrades. Wish more people would do this, as it would save them a lot of problems.

    You could have a look in C:\Windows.old directory if you have one.

    I can't really imagine it would have moved things there but it is worth a look.
