  1. How to recover a deleted user profile ?


    I accidentally deleted my main user account through the control panel but chose the "keep files" option. So my user folder is under C:\Users but i cant find a way to revert all of them back to my previous state. If that is possible at all. I tried creating a new user and changed the registry values to point to the old user but it did not work. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

    You have two options:

    • Retrieve them from your external backup medium.
    • Use one of the many "undelete" tools that you will find with a Google search.

  3. Recover deleted User Profile (Windows 7)

    Hello,

    We had 100mb remaining on the C drive. Decided to clean up by removing profiles that aren't used on the computer anymore.

    So we went it to Computer>Properties>Advance system setting>User profiles


    We've noticed a 34gb "Account Unknown" registered on the list and we have also our regular user profile (11gb). We deleted the 34gb to free up space. However, as soon as we deleted the Account Unknown, most of our files (applications and
    documents etc) were also taken out (DELETED). It seems that those files were removed as well. When we checked the User profiles again, our regular user profile was reduced to
    12mb.

    Not exactly sure what happen there, we've tried rebooting the pc but we're unable to recover anything.

    Anyone knows how to recover files, apps, documents from a deleted User profile?

    Will appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

    As what I said, the account was deleted and was not able to backup the files stored in that account. The two options doesn't work in this case. But thanks anyway.
