    Desktop folder disappear (C:\Users\Temp\Desktop) with all my material


    Hi, i need your helps

    After upgrade to windows 10 (from 8) I notice that my "active" desktop folder is C:\Users\Temp\Desktop I restart my computer and now my desktop is C:\Users"myUser"\Desktop
    The problem is - that C:\Users\Temp\Desktop folder with all of my sub-folders completely gone.

    What can I do? Is those folders are hides anywhere?

    check your C:\Users folder, see if there's a user in there call Temp. If so, your folder should be in that user's desktop folder.

    Not sure you're looking in the right place. look for a user called "Temp", not a folder in your current user's directory.

    If so he's probably out of luck. Seems odd the system would delete it though.

    Did you backup before upgrading?

    It sounds like you may have been signed on as a temporary profile for some reason. Anything that you saved to the desktop in that case is lost when you log out of that account.

    If you mean things that were on the desktop before you upgraded then you could look in C:\Winodws.old as it sometimes stores some User directory things. Otherwise you'll have to restore them from backup.
