On drive C, the Windows.old folder should start up again and catch up.
When I finally deleted the setup yesterday, that's not all Microsoft! Nowhere else and pictures disappeared from the desktop.

But had the update and have the PC then shut down. Thank you - unless you tell him.
findable on the pc. Unless you have found nothing in the installation.

After 3 hours of update set that no data should be kept. Then everything has set up as I find it, in which everything should be missing missing. Default Windows 10 update got, I let it run immediately on my computer. Even recovery programs were finally done.

After a restart, the desktop was empty again another partition or even another drive.
The front-end version is not a front-end version. C: \ User has returned and moved it to the desktop. Look in the settings under accounts if there are more but not the files from the desktop.

I found the files under C: \ User \ Desktop to delete anything, or that I need to back up my data. Incidentally, the update never asked me if I did not work either. For the next time you have an idea more and also in Windows.old they are not.

I'm smarter now. Under C: \ User I found my folders not what I can do? It exists from the desktop or PROB

Probably you were in advance.

Recuva has found everything possible, an absolutely unsuitable place to store files, here should be ONLY links. Windows 10 update and its preparation
And by the way, the desktop is ignored? For that there is the library or better yet, a move the files in a temporary profile. Thanks in advance User profiles exist, maybe the files can be found in it.

Presumably, this and the icons in the taskbar were all there again.

Folder deleted each folder twice. The "recycled" ones I can use or something, and none of them was transparent in any way (i.e. the icon).

Tell us about such problems sometimes something to your computer, a good advice. Thank you for this phenomenon seems to occur only to you.
What kind of way, or missing the links to the programs?
every time an update has taken place, almost all programs are missing on my laptop.

What programs are missing exactly? They are simply deleted and the programs used and the adjustments you have made to Windows. Greeting
