I lost a folder full of files and cannot find them anywhere on the computer.
I decided that I wanted the folder of files on a different user account so I created a new user account (B) we'll call my main user account A.
I was logged into user A and through mycomputer-cdrive-users I dumped all the files onto the desktop of user B.
User B was already logged into so I switched users and all my files were there. I worked on them for about an hour or so and saved all my changes.
When I logged off User B the computer said something like User Account did not Shut down correctly (or something similar).
Next time I logged into User Account B nothing was there. Just a blank desktop and it went through the whole entire start up process when you create a new account.
I tried a system restore, but that did not work. It did not restore all my files. Whats weird is that I had sent a few files that I no longer needed to the trash while logged into User B (new account). Even though everything had been deleted off of the desktop the files I put in the recycling bin were still there.
I need to try and recover those files. Anyone have any advice?
