My folders are missing!
Hi guys, I really need help!
Earlier today, I started my computer. It took a long time to start up. When I logged in to my user account, it was not the way I left it last night when I shut it down. I don't think it loaded my user account, but instead the default account since all my folders and files were missing on the desktop. However, I was able to find them through the "search programs and files button". I was directed to a folder where I found all my stuff, which I proceeded to drag all of them out on to my current desktop. For whatever reason, I decided to restart my computer. And when I logged in again, it reverted back to my user account but all of my folders and files were gone again! I know the files and folders are on my computer since the amount of space left on the C-drive indicates that the folders were not deleted.
I think what I have to do is get into the "default account" again and move the folders back. Or I can just move them onto an external hard-drive. But I have no idea how to get there. I searched on the internet but I didn't know what key words I should put in. So I'm still very much stuck and desperate.
Please help! Thank you in advance.

Check under c:\users and look for any of them that say "temp". More than likely you logged in with a temporary profile and the files are sitting there. If it says you don't have permission, just right click the folder > security > advanced > owner and take ownership of the folder and all subfolders. Post back if this doesn't work!
