  1. 2 desktop folders


    So I have a problem, I backup my desktop to OneDrive and I have a small notebook desktop folder and large notebook desktop folder on my OneDrive, I deleted everything and reinstalled Windows on my larger laptop and it automatically selected the smaller laptops desktop folder as the desktop folder, I managed to get it changed so the desktop folder is the large laptop desktop folder but the icon and name didnt change so I now see 2 Desktop files both with the Desktop icon on my OneDrive in File explorer. This is very annoying. Thanks for any help. Simon

    :)

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.
