1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I'm a college kid. Can someone tell me how to restore my computer's documents and pictures? This is beyond annoying for a more complicated system, even if it "looks" better.
    So my laptop restarted and the download took like over an hour, and when it came back it *said* "all files are exactly where you left them" for like 5 min... aaaand nothing is on my desktop and idk how to find pics or the many word docs i had. When looking at This PC & C:drive I think they're somewhere in there, but how do I get them all (I don't recall all their names). Right clicking shows an option to "restore previous version" but I'm nervous it won't fix it and just erase it.

    Were they in Documents? Look there.

    Perhaps you can find them in the Windows.old folder.

    Also the previous version feature is something you wouldn't use in this case.
