    Completely unable to restore desktop after Windows 10 update


    Hi!
    So as a lot of people I was surprised to see that all the files from my desktop were gone after updating my computer. I then checked some forums and as it was mentioned all my files were in C:/Users/*name*/Desktop. I then dragged and dropped all my files to my actual desktop and everything was fine, I could now clearly see them. I then restarted my computer because it was getting very slow and when it was back on , all my files were gone again and C:/Users/*name*/Desktop was empty.
    I've been trying everything for the past few hours, but backup was not activated , I can not access any previous versions of my desktop folder, I have checked I was on the right account, used EaseUS Data recovery and restoring my computer to a previous version of Windows did not bring back my files.
    Is there a solution? Cause I never expressively deleted my files , they just seem to have vanished and some of them are absolutely crucial for my upcoming exam.
    I will be forever grateful to anyone who can help me get back my files or even understand what happened.
    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Completely unable to restore desktop after Windows 10 update :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Completely unable to restore desktop after Windows 10 update

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.
