  1. Windows User Deleted after Update


    So, we encountered some sort of issue. An update came by after a very long time and after it finished, it erased the user account + files and we tried in so many ways to restore those files but we can only find data files, but we were unable to find photos or music and such.

    What could i do/try? I tried with EaseUS but it only recovered data files...

    :)
