Very late last night I finally gave in to the nagging pop-ups to upgrade my laptop to Windows 10 (from 8.1). Like a fool I believed all the assurances that the files would be exactly where I left them, and went ahead without thinking to back up first (as I said, it was late...) Now I appear to have lost all my photos, personal files, work files, etc. Surely there should have been some kind of warning that this would happen? Can I get them back?
Many thanks, that worked - I've managed to find most of them, fortunately - rather obscurely filed! I still can't find the backup of my Blackberry pictures though, but the good news is I hadn't got around to deleting them from my mobile so hopefully that can also be resolved. Why does it all have to be so difficult?
I'm reserving judgement on the operating system per se, as I haven't really had chance to evaluate it yet - but if the upgrade process is anything to go by, I'm not holding my breath! A pop-up appeared asking for feedback on how I found the upgrade...let's just say the caps lock key was used in the reply.
