Can't find old desktop files on hard drive! Tags: Desktops Hard Drives Windows 7 Last response: November 21, 2012 4:49 PM in Windows 7 Share DiPaolo November 21, 2012 10:01:28 AM Got a new computer today, plugged in my old 500GB hard drive for back up storage. I went into it, can see everything fine, go through the program files, etc... Except I can't find my old documents, pictures, or anything that was saved on my desktop. A search won't even bring it up. How the heck can I get it back? More about : find desktop files hard drive tripledouce November 21, 2012 11:01:54 AM what was the old Operating System? DiPaolo November 21, 2012 4:49:24 PM Windows 7. I found the "problem". I'm more familiar with XP, so I wasn't too sure where to look, but the files were of course under the Users folder in my old profile. But I still don't understand why it wasn't drawing any search results. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
