  1. Windows 10 Update caused user profiles to disappear.


    After allowing Windows 10 to update, my original user profiles are gone and I cannot sign in to them. A temporary user profile was created in the process. I found the files for my original profiles but now need to find out how to safely transfer them into a new user profile with admin access to bring things back to how they were before I let the update run. Not expecting any assistance but I just want to let Microsoft know that another user is having this issue, and it is beyond infuriating.

    :)

  3. Work User Profile disappeared after Windows 10 update

    I use a MS Surface. After a Windows 10 update, my user account profile disappeared. The windows login screen shows user accounts for: defaultuser1 and other user. Neither of those were there before update. I do not have an option to login nor bypass the
    listed accounts.

    Please advise how to restore my user profile to login screen.
