Windows 7: My Windows deletes files from deskop frequently

03 May 2014   #11

Windows 10 Education 64 bit
 
 

Open the charms bar and select settings > Change PC Settings > SkyDrive or OneDrive > Sync settings and File storage. You can turn off any settings you think are responsible here. If you log onto more than one PC with the same Live ID it can cause some weird things to happen. My Start Screen tiles were getting rearranged and it was the OneDrive Sync that was doing it. My laptop and desktop screens are different sizes so the tiles would be rearranged to fit the smaller screen. That would shuffle them on my desktops bigger screen to match the layout on my laptop, I'd then put them back to how I had them. The next time I logged onto my laptop, wash rinse and repeat. Once I tuned that sync setting off I got my sanity back.

EDIT: I should say that I have never had any shortcuts or files deleted from my desktop, even with the default Sync settings.

If you created a OneDrive account in order to setup Windows 8 and haven't deleted files from it then you still have storage. If you placed files in the OneDrive User folders those files were sync'd up to OneDrive until it couldn't connect any longer. They may be sitting in your account, just like in my Hotmail account I can click on OneDrive at the top of my email inbox to see mine. Even if you deleted them from there or from your destkop they may still be in the OneDrive Recycle Bin. This is a safety valve for deleting fines that are sync'd to OneDrive - they always go into your Win7 and OneDrive Recycle Bin and stay there until it is emptied.

You have a lot of Yandex; a Russian search engine and mail server.
To me that is very scary.

I recommend going to our Security section with that information and seek help. I have a feeling that you are infected.

It looks like you're using Windows Defender as your AV. I don't know if WD does this or not but I have had AV software automatically delete software/files that it decided were unsafe and I had to add them to an exclusion list to prevent the AV software from deleting them.

What kind of files are getting deleted? Do files get deleted if saved to a different location other than the desktop?
