Windows 10: Lost Desktop Files
same thing happened after i updated CCcleaner
same thing happened when i updated CC cleaner on my desktop pc, everything was fine until i updated that programme, so i doubt it was avast, but a problem with windows 10 itself, but it has only had an effect on other profiles on the pc, mine seems fine, but i'm not holding my breath.
I made an account just to thank you. thanks
I was working on digitizing music from an old cassette -- AGPTek cassette capture -- when I completed the transfer of an album to a file folder on my desktop, the file folder disappeared. I had also invested quite a bit of time separating out several of the songs, so I was concerned I'd lost all the work. Fortunately the search function located the folder with all of the files intact --ON MY GOOGLE DRIVE! I have no way of knowing how that happened. I use the Google Drive as a temp backup, but did not knowingly use any combination of keystrokes to move that folder. Mystery solved, and my faith in the Widows 10 search function restored.
Hey there i did the same, most where saved on an external hard drive (all my pictures) but lost my résumé and some other documents, and stupid me didn't found this tread before I rolled the update back, and that didn't help...is it possible to still find my files or will the be lost forever?
I use to use a registry cleaner and stopped a long time ago. You don't need CC cleaner. As for Avast just use Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. If you need to clean up virus, malware and PUPs use adwcleaner from bleepingcomputer.com .
Hello. Please accept appreciation from one more victim like me. ShadowExplorer solution perfectly works for me. I can recover all my important files and folders now. Thank you very much, sir.
This is what happen;
-desktop change, some random program shortcuts remain but none important files and folders
-open C users desktop and "move" all of them to the desktop
-boot in the morning with shock and confuse
-google many solutions and found the right one here
-install and run ShadowExplorer, choose the date to last night, go to C users desktop, all my precious are there!
I just signed up to say THANK YOU with ShadowExplorer I've recovered 20GB+ files, thank you man!
