Specs: Windows 10
Hello there, I just lost all the files on my desktop except few shortcuts were left. I actually wanted to free up more space on the C Drive so i opened it and double clicked on Users on the C drive then right clicked to open properties and then checked the box titled as HIDDEN the i clicked apply. Immediately the action started, my desktop files also started disappearing one after the other untile just few shortcuts were left. I am using windows 10 Asus laptop, is ther anyway i can get my files back?

Silly question maybe but did you go back and uncheck the box marked hidden? Seems they might still be there but are now hidden.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Have you rebooted the system?

... and if restarting the system doesn't help try discharging the motherboard like this:

Turn off computer and remove power cord from supply. Remove main battery if it is a laptop. Before putting it back together hold the Power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds. At odd times this has unstuck things.
