  1. Windows 10 Update - Logged in as a temporary user


    Hello!

    I upgraded to Windows 10 on 4/21 around 2:30pm. I let them computer sit and do the upgrade all day. I came back to the computer around 8pm that night and noted the upgrade was apparently complete. However all of my files, pictures, settings, were gone. I had saved emailed myself copies of all important documents and wasn't concerned that my documents were not there. I opened Word and began creating a new document for work. I saved it and then went to bed. The next day I woke up, opened up my laptop and found that all my OLD settings (from Windows 8.1) were back including documents, pictures, settings but that the document that I created in windows 10 the previous night was gone. I've done some research and think that maybe the installation of Windows 10 wasn't complete or maybe I was logged in to a temporary account but I still can't find this one specific document that I created in Word with Windows 10. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 yesterday. Everything seemed ok until today after a restart. Windows will not load my user profile, and will only sign me in as a temporary user. I have signed out and back in, tried signing in as a local user (previous
    windows 7 user profile), restarted, turned off and back on. Account settings and sign in options look to be ok. How do I get my user profile back?
