  1. Files disappeared after changing internal cables


    I'm a little distressed because all of my personal files has just suddenly disappeared. I have recently changed my computer chassis, and it was all plugged in to work correctly. I have 2x m.2 drives, one nvme and one sata, and 2x sata HDD's, a 4TB and a 8TB.I spent the time to reorganise my data neatly on the HDD's, namely my personal photos, videos, music and documents. I recently bought two items from amazon, https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B0086OGN9E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B01LYC6A8M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie

    Cable to transfer files

    OMG. I have never met anyone who actually bought one of those file transfer things.



    Firewire will do the same as USB, but faster, so will a cheap crossover cable. I can wlak you through the steps of moving data so you will not miss a beat.




    Anything more than $10 to buy a cable is too much.

    Files disappeared after changing internal cables

    Icons disappeared and theme changed.

    Hi Roland,

    Corrupted system files may be one of the possible causes why the icons on your desktop disappeared. To assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Have you tried creating a new user profile and check if the problem is in the current profile or also with the new profile?

    Meanwhile, I suggest that you follow the steps shared by Meliton Dec on this
    thread.
    The given troubleshooting steps will help repair or reset not only missing apps but also lost icon.

    Additionally, You can reset the Icon Cache. Kindly follow the steps provided below:

    • Open File Explorer and navigate to the following folder:

      C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer
    • In the Explorer folder, you will see a lot of files with the
      iconcache name. Delete all of them.

    Once you have deleted all the iconcache files, a folder names IconCacheToDelete
    will appear. Simply restart your PC and this folder will disappear.

    In the event that you are unable to delete some of the files, see the steps below:

    • Open elevated Command Prompt. (Win+X > Command Prompt (Admin))
    • Type the following command, and then press Enter:

      cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer attrib –h iconcache_*.db del iconcache_*.db start explorer

    If the issue still persists, I recommend you try the suggestion provided by
    kpeW9
    on this thread or the steps shared by
    Guru Khan G on this thread
    to troubleshoot your concern. This will also help you scan for corruption and restore corrupted files/Windows corruptions error.
