    Cannot find Default migrated


    I had a bunch of files saved in Word in Windows 8.1 under users/default but I cannot find them now. If I open Word I can see some of them in the list but cannot find where they are. I am attaching a screenshot of one of the file. I would appreciate any help and thank you.

    Install Everything Search. Let it start after install to build it's index, usually only takes a few seconds.
    I n the input area, enter the file you are looking for or as much of it as you remember. For example: #21.doc

    Everything will list every location where a file contains that string as part of the filename.doc

    See if it finds it for you. I find this much, much better than the built in Windows search.

    or....

    In File Explorer,

    This PC
    enter the following in the search box

    kind:=document

    but people do find Search Everything easier to use than Windows search.

    Wait ... was your question I cannot find the Default.migrated folder?

    In File Explorer, change the view to include hidden items
    on the View menu/ribbon - tick hidden items

    If you still cannot see the folder, then it might be a system folder
    Press the blue file menu on File Explorer
    Select Folder options
    press the view tab
    put a tick in view system files .. answer yes to the dialog

    Look in C:\Users\Default.migrated
