    How to restore file in deleted user account (Desktop File)

    At the first after I upgraded my notebook from windows 8 to windows 10,
    I just realize that 1 of my 3 user account is not exist anymore (the Guest account is not there just after I upgrade it into windows 10). As I tried to make the new Guest account and still didnt work (I dont want to follow such a complex email registration required by windows 10 to make a new user account), I thought to delete my secondary user account. However, I just realize that there is a file that I saved in the Desktop under my secondary user account. Is there a way to restore this desktop file that is saved in my deleted user account?

    I have opened C:\Users\ but I cant find the folder with the name of my deleted user account.
    Can anyone help me?

    It's very important yet big file (around 2 GB). Thankss

    Hi Blaume, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    I am sorry but when you deleted the user account, it's gone, all its files are gone, forever. The only way to get the file back would be to restore a system image made before the account was deleted.

    The built-in guest account no longer works in Windows 10. However, you can create a new Guest account by yourself:
