lost files after windows update

Windows 8.1 recently updated itself automatically.All my photos and most of my documents are now missing. Some of them are still there but only as shortcuts which doesnt allow you access the folder, i.e. it just says shortcut is not available. Any thoughts anyone?

Use Windows Explorer and go to C:\Users

Is there another profile with your user name and are your files in that?

Thanks for the replies. Tried finding any info on the update to no avail. The @ is correct and all money is in pounds

Looked in users and there are three folders, myself and TEMP and public. None of which have any photos or documents in.

I think its time to format and start again. Thanks again for trying to give me a solution
