Ok so I have a big problem... I created a new user account on my PC. Then I transferred(dragged and dropped) all my files over to the new account, but for some reason now they are all invisiable/missing and cannot be seen or accessed. I know they have not been deleted because the hard drive has the same amount of data space used and left over as before the transfer. I am using vista (64 bit) The whole story… Well it’s a big can of worms – that all started a few weeks back when my usual user account came up with the warning “The User Profile Service service failed the logon” Researching forums – the easiest solution I could find was to make a new user account and transfer the files over and delete the old account. So I did this no problems and it worked fine. Then I went away for the weekend and my wife used my computer, and when I returned and logged in it said “data could be corrupt do you want to run a system check”. Of course I said yes. Then it asked “do I want to revert back to a previous saved point”. I said yes. Now this is where it gets tricky… So my computer started up again from the previous start point. BUT this save point was before the actual date I had created the new user account where I had transferred the files. So therefore there was no user account to login it to. I STARTED FREAKING OUT! I logged in to the other admin account (I always keep a spare) and found that the new user account was not active, but the folder was there and all its contents. Phew I thought and decided to start the process again and make another new user account and transfer the files like I had done a few weeks before. Did exactly the same steps. But after transferring the files I opened the folders and there was nothing there? Checked every folder in the new user account – nothing there! But like i said the data usage is the same and the data properties says there is 122 gigs in the user folder? I searched forums but couldn’t find anyone with the exact same problem as myself. I don’t know what to do! PLEASE HELP ME FIND THESE FILES! Lots of these I have no backups off, also to make matters worse I had only just imported video of my son's sports carnival and had not had the chance to back it up yet. THANKYOU! PS before you say it - yes no backups – yes I am an idiot!
