Why did you took ownership of desktop ( C:\User\Username\Desktop) ? Is to necessary for you ? Secondly what forgotten clearly means .... what is the actual situation of the files ? Asking these questions, coz generally men dont take ownership of that folder .

Anyway , if you have a System Restore to an earlier time than you took that ownership, it would be reverted .

Arc is right, use a restore point. The safe way to use take ownership is for individual files.
