    Windows 10 upgrade- lost User Accounts


    I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the free upgrade. Initially during the upgrade and configuration, I was using my account. However, didn't see my wife's account at login. After install and setup was complete, I was updating a few programs out of date due to the upgrade, restarted, and at login only my wife's account was present. No option for me to login. I looked in the Settings/Accounts/Family & other users and there isn't anyone else listed. I still have a file under users on the C drive but not sure how to fix this without having to create a new account. During initial setup when I was logged in, my desktop setting were exactly how they were with Win 7. So, no clue what happened. Thanks

    :)

  3. Lost files after updating to Windows 10

    I thought I had lost my files. I had 4 user accounts on windows 7 before I upgraded to windows 10. When windows 10 introduction page came on after upgrade it started on a different new user page and on this desktop account was none of my files. After restarting
    computer I could then pick my usual user account which had all my files as usual but with windows 10 format.
