  1. I lost my personal files and can't go back to previous version!!!!


    Hi all, I updated my PC a few months ago and then hadn't used up until a few days ago. Most of my files are missing, and cannot go back to previous version because it's been more than 10 days. I updated again to see if it would revert the situation but still nothing. What else can I do?

    :)

  2. How to view WordPad Previous Versions.

    Hi,

    With regard to you query about restoring previous version of a file, please follow the methods below:

    Method 1: Restore Previous version

    • Right-click the file.
    • Select Restore Previous versions.
    • Click on Previous Versions tab.
    • You may see a list of older copies of the file available.

    Method 2:

    You may also check the File History. File History saves copies of your files so you can get them back if they're lost or damaged.

    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select All Control Panel Items.
    • Click on File History.
    • Select Restore personal files.

  3. Lost Files after Windows 10 upgrade

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am sorry to know that you have
    lost all your personal folders. Do not worry, will assist you with the issue.

    If you can't find a file on your computer or you accidently modified or deleted a file, you can restore it from a backup (if you're using Windows backup) or you can try to restore it from a previous version. Previous versions are copies of files
    and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point. Previous versions are sometimes referred to as shadow copies.


    • Are you able to find all the data in Windows.Old folder?
    Method 1

    Step 1: If you don’t know the path, Press Windows key and R key together.

    Step 2: Type “C:” and tap on
    Enter key

    Step 3: Open Windows.Old folder and check.

    Please get back to us, we will be happy to assist you.

    Recovering Lost Files

    Hi, Shaun.

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

    Before we proceed, I would like you to provide the information below:

    Can you find the files now, if you go to windows.old?

    I would suggest that you perform Power Drain and check you can find the files and folder that you have lost. To do so follow the steps below:

    • Unplug the charger and remove the battery of your laptop, if using a desktop remove the power cord.
    • Press and hold the Power button for 30sec
    • Plug the charger/power cord and restart system

    If you can't find a file on your computer or you accidently modified or deleted a file, you can restore it from a backup (if you're using Windows backup) or you can try to restore it from a previous version. Previous versions are copies of files
    and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point. Previous versions are sometimes referred to as shadow copies.

    Hope this information helps.
