Is there a way to easily restore the files that were in a user account that was deleted such as in "my document" and the destop of that user name? Must restore, might have months of baby photos that are lost.
look in the documents and settings directory. the users folder should still be there. If you dont have rights, log into an Administrator account and take ownership.
XP does not delete the files when you remove an account.
The folder isn't there. I also recreated the user using the same name and it did access the missing files either. I believe XP does delete the files. XP asked whether or not I wanted to save the files to the desktop of the user I was using. There was an error saving those files so I continued to delete the user without saving them. Is there anyway to recover without using a specialized data recovery program?
