When i turn my laptop on and put pictures on from my phone into folders or download some music. After i had finished what i was doing i would turn my laptop off. Then the next time i would come on my laptop again all the music and pictures that were there had gone but i dont know where they go. Thank you for any responses your help would be appreciated.

Have you tried a Search for *.mp3 or *.jpg to find which folder they are in?

So the problem is not that your pictures going missing it is that you are not allowed to save them because you have only a Temporary Account.

According to Microsoft click here a temporary account is created if the user's account has been accidentally deleted.

Click on Start, Control Panel, User Accounts and Family Safety, Add or Remove User Accounts, Create a New Account, put in your new account name and make sure that the Administrator circle has a dot in it.

You will probably have to re-boot after clicking on OK.
