I'm freaking out right now. There was a folder titled Windows.000 that was created after my previous upgrade to windows 10. This folder had all of my data on it and now it has completely disappeared. It feels like somebody has physically come into my home and gutted my hard drive. Can somebody please tell me that this is something that can happen? My C:\ properties say 1.9GB Free out of 2... WTF?? How??

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

It has been noted that you have an identical topic on 'Geeks to Go' to which a reply has been made, which includes a suggestion about data recovery. It is not a good idea to have two identical topics running on different forums at the same time because of possible confusion about who said what to whom !

 

I would have replied in similar terms to the reply on 'Geeks' except I saw the reply there first, and I believe that answer is correct. There is no suggestion at this stage that you have a virus problem and I am moving this topic to the Windows 10 section.

 

Finally, for the future you might remember that everybody on this forum is a volunteer and you have to give people a reasonable amount of time to reply before 'bumping' a topic. 48 hours is reasonable, 22 minutes is not.

Can you please confirm how did you upgrade to the the new version of Windows 10 as there is an option with clean install and format of the hard drive.

What type of files you are looking for? (pictures, documents or videos?)
