    Windows does update without permission and "deletes" files


    Hello, I have been very confused and upset with what's been happening with my computer lately. About a week ago, it did an update while I was in a call on Discord. It didn't ask for permission or anything, it just updated by itself. When it was done updating, I realized my wallpapers were replaced by the default ones and my files were all missing. There were only a few useless game apps left on my desktop. I wrote about it on this exact forum but it wouldn't let me post it. I could find them on my OneDrive thing, thankfully.But it's happened a second time and I really don't want to have to do

    :)
