Frequently Asked Questions - missing files

FAQs - missing files
Here you will find questions and answers to common Windows topics.
Each member of our family has our own "account" on our computer. This morning when my son logged in to his, all his files were gone. Pictures, music, data, everything.

First thing you need to is to make sure someone didn't accidentally or purposely delete the account from the Users section in Control Panel. When a user is deleted then it asks if you want to delete the users files as well.

If not then you can look to see if the C:\Users\username folder is there (username will be your sons login name). Open Windows Explorer and browse to the C:\Users\ folder and see if your sons name is there and if there is anything in the folder.

You can also do a search of the entire computer for his files in case they were moved if you know the names of some of them or you can do a search for his username.
