I copied a former employee's profile (C:Users/) to our file server. I double checked after it copied and everything was there. For example, My Documents, Desktop, etc. I checked today and everything is missing, but it's the same size as when it copied over. Now I see folders like .gma, .swt, app data, etc. I see no desktop folder or my documents. 

 

Can anyone assist?

Hello

Do you have previous versions enabled?

You can also try takeing ownership of the folder all of the sub folders, then give your self view access. This may just be a permission issue.

Were these the employee's personal files or just those having to do with employment, in like a BYOD setting? 

 

 

 

For example, My Documents, Desktop, etc.

 

Would be Personal Documents. Work Documents would be in an entirely different folder (or should be). 

 

We had BYOD where I was last employed, but the IT Team would only copy documents that were pertaining to employment & that only. and they assisted me in the creation of a separate partition for these files. This way, my personal files remained mine, and the work documents could be audited at random w/o risking my privacy.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
