Windows 7 64 bit .... sp1
Yesterday I went to use PC and it said 'preparing desktop' and created a default profile.
I did a sytem restore back 24 Hrs ... and it recoverred and worked fine.
Today it's back again, tried restore to same point ... no fix, tried an earlier restore - same problem.
I did a google and found issue related to switch users (which we do use) Windows 7 user profile lost when you log off or reboot
but there is no .bak profile there only the correct named profiles.
My profile is admin ...
Also noticed that if I look under "my computer" my D drive (Apps & data) is missing ... looked underthe accounts for 2 other users ... they have correct desktoips ... but they aslo can't see D:\
Not sure if that measn I have lost my HDD (OS is on sepearte C:\ SSD)
In case it's relevant ... when I switch on it boots to normal 'select user' icons ... and accepts user passwords.
