    Missing documents


    My documents and files are disappearing from my computer. When I go to one drive I have some of them but not all of them. Why are things disappearing.For example: I have the H&R Block Program. I saved files through this program and when I looked at it today there are no files. They have all be uploaded and accepted but the program indicates that I have no returns. I have found 2 or the 6 files in One drive but have no idea where the others have went.How can I keep things in My Documents on my computerThanks

    :)

    Hi Richard,



    To sort your documents in your File Explorer by date, we suggest following the steps below:



    • Type File Explorer in Cortana search box to open File Explorer.
    • Go to the folder that you want to sort.
    • Click on View that is located on the top part of the window.
    • Click on Sort by.
    • Choose Date.


    Your files should be sorted by date with this option.



    Let us know if this works for you.
