    Can't recover Admin User Profile after Windows 10 upgrade on HP laptop


    My HP laptop did an upgrade last month to Windows 10. Ever since then, the Admin User profile that was set up has "disappeared" and each time I go on my laptop, it shows as a TEMP user. I have tried fix after fix to try to recover the corrupt user profile, but it always reverts to TEMP. I have probably spent 2-3 full days trying to fix this problem, but have found no solution. I have now decided to create a new user profile with admin capabilities, but I need to know if I can delete the primary admin user profile attached to my Microsoft account and then reconnect the new profile to my Microsoft account.

    :)

  3. User Profiles not uploading at Start

    Hi Ernie,

    Your computer might have experience a fresh start when the upgrade occurred last December 16, 2017, and the user profiles on it got affected as well. However, let us not jump into any conclusions yet until we isolated your concern. Let's see if we'll be
    able to recover the missing user profile using a command line in command prompt.

    • Open CMD as Administrator.
    • Enter this command "net localgroup “Administrators” [Computer Name][Missing User] /add".
    • Once done, restart your computer.

    You may also check if you'll see the missing user profile/s in Local User and Groups manager. Here are the steps on how to do so:

    • Press the Windows + R on your keyboard, then type in lusrmgr.msc.
    • Click on Users, then check if the missing user profile is on the right pane.

    Let us know if the above steps worked.

    User Profiles location changed with Window 10 upgrade


    Tutorial: Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    • The second part, titled Method Two, explains how to workaround the Start and Search issue when relocating Users on an existing system
    • The third part, titled Upgrade, explains how to upgrade from Windows 7 with relocated users folder

    Better were to back up the user data to external storage and wipe the disk, use Method One in above mentioned tutorial to clean install Windows 10 relocating the Users folder, then copy user data from external backup to new user folders.
