Here's the problem:

 

Kind of hard to understand but bear with me, I log into Windows using my user account "Owner", it appeared at first that the data was gone.  However upon closer inspection I notice that it's logging into Windows and then using a folder called "Temp" where it's libraries are by default, but all of the data for the account is stored in the folder called "Temp" I'm not sure why this is, it wasn't like that on Friday.

 

Login option - "Owner"

Users directory - "Owner", "Temp"

Data stored - "Owner"

Library used - "Temp"

 

I'm hoping you guys are understanding what I'm meaning, it's difficult to explain.

 This sounds like a corrupt user ID.  I'd create another ID with admin authority, sign on with the new ID, then copy the files from the old ID to the new one.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Thanks Wolverine 7 and wpgwpg

 

Wolverine 7 I think your post might have helped me solve the problem.  I do think it's selecting the "Owner" user profile tile but it's logging into a "temp" profile because of the user account service.  Thanks guys, I'll let you know once I've solved it!

Sorry for the delay, I didn't have a chance to test that customer's computer until today.  However, it seems that what I thought was correct so thank you for posting those guides Wolverine 7.  I created a new profile and transferred the data to the new one and then removed the old profile.  Seems like there should've been an easier way to solve the issue but none of the other methods worked.  Again, thanks very much!
