    I accessed an USB drive that had an important file that Win 10 home decided was a threat and appeared to delete it without warning. Is there any way to retrieve this file?

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    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 ?.

    File explorer freezes and Movie maker will not import .avi files

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Community, I understand your concern and we will try to assist you in the best way we can.

    With respect to the issue related to File Explorer, I suggest that you perform the steps mentioned below and check if it still freezes.

    • Go to task manager. (To open press ctrl+alt+delete)
    • Click on Details, select explorer.exe
      and click End Task.
    • Go to file, located on the top left corner of task manager and select
      Run New Task
    • Type explorer.exe and click on OK.

    With respect to the issue with Movie Maker, I would like you to provide the information stated below:

    Did you receive the .avi file or is it locally stored in your system?

    I would suggest that you try to import the file to another software similar to Movie Maker so that we can know if the issue is with the file or the program itself. Also try to import another .avi file and check if you get the same error message

    Your reply is very important to ensure a proper resolution. Please get back to us with the above information in order to assist you accordingly.
