I don't understand why people think system restore has anything to do with user files. It doesn't. That is what backup is about.

Amy1001 it sounds more like perhaps you ended up with a new profile. If you go to c: and users what accounts do you see listed here?

There can also be an issue with file/disk corruption. This is when you run chkdsk /r or /f [not both] on the drive to correct this. Way to check is just run chkdsk and if it says near the end no problems found you are OK. Otherwise run the chkdsk with the /switch.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
