    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand your inconvenience. We will assist you with it.

    I suggest you to refer the following Microsoft help article to about AppData folder.

    What is the AppData folder?

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/what-appdata-folder

    Note: This link is also applicable to Windows 10 as well.

    I suggest you to perform System Restore on your computer and check if you are able to get back the AppData folder.



    System Restore brings a system to an operable condition after a disaster so that it can again accept and process data.



    To perform System Restore follow the step provided below.



    • Press Windows Key + R Key

    Hope this resolves your issue. Do let us know if it helped. For further assistance, feel free to contact us.
