    Disappearance of my files from the computer


    Hello

    I do not speak English
    I hope that the idea you up well

    (Disappearance of my files from the computer)

    For the first time since the installation of Windows has been pressure on signout
    After some time. I wanted to use the computer. The log on again
    But
    The harsh surprise
    The disappearance of all my files stored on your PC

    Yeah . Software and applications still exist
    But nothing special My Profile
    No photos
    No videos
    No Audio
    Other files are not

    What's the solution ?

    Note: I use Windows 10 Pro

    Another remark may help to find a solution:

    right Now
    It is not saved anything changes or perform it on your PC
    When you add files in PC
    or
    When you add some of the sites in the Favorites list
    or
    When downloading files from the Internet to your computer
    or
    or
    or
    None of that. Anything that is not saved in the computer


    This is not my problem now
    It is important for me now that I could return my files were gone


    Thank

    What exactly did the Windows install on this computer do? If there was any kind of "format and install" or "replace the current OS" there is going to be a long long hard road to recover your data folders and files. Do not continue using current Windows! As it runs, it deletes, writes, deletes, writes -- possibly endangering recovery of your data folders and files. On another computer, can you make a Puppy Linux usb or dvd boot? I assume you did not make any backups before this happened?

    The search should find some document and image types.

    sounds like you may have logged in on another account, or more likely logged in on a non microsoft linked account instead of your microsoft linked account.

    meaning that you have all the same apps and software as any other login but none of the personal files... just a guess.

    Previous posters reminded me -- I totally forgot about the AppData/My Document combine for each account. I hope you will discover your folders and files real soon!

    Regrettably, I do not have a backup


    I'm sorry if I missed a question of your questions because I do not speak English well

    I found my files via this method and through the search for the required files have title
    Now what is the solution to retrieve it? Rather than search for them each separately
