Profile is empty and olny one - previous administrator; which I mostly used. Others are gone.
but... I'm not following you here: "are you sure the data was lost and not just the profiles themselves?"
Hmm... Data was a part of profile, under c:\Users\... - so if a user/profile:that is folder at filesystem level is not there anymore - so are not documents associated with the profile.
Correct me if I wrong... (I would be glad
that I am wrong).
So: yes, c:\users is empty -welll: now only have 1 profile - the new one that win repair created.
To be honest I don't remember if I had to type the name of user... I know it was kinda strange repair: it discovered "corrupted" files - offered a fix, and then also I had to set language for keyboard, and a few (not all!) things - that are part of blank installation...
And here comes the question again: can I somehow get old profiles? (System restore points are not there anymore - so no going back in time
Or at least certificates (that is most important right now).
It strange to me: because "repair" did offer files that were somehow "corrupted" - but I ended up with more or less fresh install - graphic drivers gone,... that was not what repair "said"
Has it anything to do with win version? I have msdn (via job, and academic via masters program): so I installed (without thinking too much
) - enterprise edition.
