    Unable to find photos and documents on the PC


    I opened my computer and all my documents and photos are gone. I am not logged in as a temporary account user. I have searched for a Windows.old folder and don't see one. When I open the folders for pictures and documents it days this folder is empty. I have restarted the computer numerous times. Yesterday the same thing happened and I was able to restore it to a previous version and everything came back. Today I tried to restore it again but the computer will only allow me to restore it to last night which doesn't help.

    • Right click on the folder and click on properties.
    • Click on security tab and select the group\user name.
    • Click on edit option and check the option full control.
    • Click on apply and then on ok button.
    Now you can try saving the file in photos and documents and check if the issue persists.
