    Sooo, I messed up. My daughter gave me her old Asus laptop last year, with windows 10 but I never factory reset it. I know silly.

    Hi,

    Thank you posting on Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you willing to create the Family account again?
    • Are you trying to recover the files of the deleted account?

    Note: Once deleted, the user accounts cannot be recovered. Make sure you back up any data if required.

    Keep us posted to help you better.
