Windows 10 update is allegedly deleting files

There is a potential issue with Windows 10 KB4532693 update involving the loss of user data. This security update reverts certain system settings to their defaults and also removed files from the desktop.

For many users, Windows 10 has renamed main user profile folder and files can be restored

While many users are able to restore their files from the temporary folder, some users who have lost all desktop files are unable to get around that profile folder.

If you are unable to login to your profile or you do login and all custom icons, settings and desktop backgrounds have disappeared, stop using the computer and get the computer to us, or we can come out to you.

We can login remotely to check if backups are working properly, or install if needed.

Data Recovery

The most common data recovery procedure we perform involves a computer that won’t boot due to a drive failure. This is most often caused by a bump or a knock to the computer while the hard disk is writing critical data. Sometimes the head physically crashes into the the plater. This is where the term ‘hard drive crash’ originated. Of course failure of spinning hard disks happens for many reasons include wear and tear. Some drives spin at 10,000 rpm with as little as 3 nanometres separating the drive head from the disk plater. This provides very little room for error. Something that goes hand in hand with data recovery is your backup plan. If you don’t have a backup policy in place please contact us straight away for a tailor made solution. To ensure we can recover as much data as possible stop using the media or the effected computer straight away. Stage one recovery prices start from only $250 for most media types including hard drives, discs and flash cards. This price includes GST and the replacement drive.
