  1. New Windows installation deleted all my old files including important documents!


    I was have to reinstall the whole Windows 10 resetting wasn't worked because of stupid "Your PIN is not available" error and after fresh installation finished, Windows 10 automatically opened smart storage and instantly deleted all my files inside Windows.old that I was going to recover. All my important documents, musics, clips, videos, savegames and all other important things are gone. What can I do except looking into my empty "C:\Windows.old\Users" folder?

    :)

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink New Windows installation deleted all my old files including important documents! ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    My Documents Files - Deleted?

    For some reason all the files apart from My Games/Crysis Wars have been somehow deleted without my doing. Strangely, I went to play Crysis Wars the other day and my profiles were gone, thinking nothing of it I proceded to reset them up. Also strangely, I did not install any games folders in My Documents, somehow the folders Games/Crysis Wars just appeared, when, I really don't know. I have install my OS on a seperate hard drive and My Documents as well as every other folder used as storage is linked to another seperate HDD. Tried a system restore, still no good, why? Has Crysis somehow deleted/corrupted this folder? confused:
