    Thank you for your quick reply! It was interesting because there was a few files in the recycle bin, but many were completely gone. I'll take half the blame as I didn't back up his profile prior to the deletion. But he didn't have a backup either despite the fact our school provide ample network storage and a paid subscription to office 365 with 1TB of cloud storage. So that one is on him. But thanks again for the reply to clarify.

    Previous versions of Windows gave you an option to 1. delete the user profile and all data, or 2. delete the user profile and save the data. If you chose to save the data, a folder would be created on your desktop with all the library files from the deleted account. Not sure why we don't have this option in W10 - I could have used it several times already.
