    Ok, so I am running windows 7 and a while back I did a update(still on windows 7) and when it restarted all my files were missing. I know they got put in a folder somewhere because my HD never decreased in size. But for the life of it I just can't find where that folder is. I have gone into system settings and made hidden folders visible. I tried searching for it but can't find it. Please help

    I'd check "windows.old" under the boot or C drive.

    Perhaps system file check is in oeder.

    In the search box, type cmd > at the top left, right click at cmd > click Run As Admin > Enter
    At the flashing prompt, type sfc /scannow
    > Enter.
