Before the swap I placed all of my files into an external HDD. I did this by moving the Users file into the new HDD. Upon installing my new OS, I transfered the Users file from the external into my PC again and dragged and dropped everything into their corresponding places (i.e. Documents into Documents, Downloads into Downloads, and so on). Now a couple of my files made it through to places I can locate them, but my more hidden stuff like MS Office and my Adobe software are no where to be found. I also had a decent selection of Steam games downloaded that were supposedly in the files I transferred and my PC says I have to download them all again. Would anyone be able to tell me how I can find my poor lost files again? I need the first two for school.
Thank you for your time!
