Yesterday an issue came up where my user account appeared as new (as if it was the first use of the account), I assumed this was the result of an auto-update so set everything up and continued as normal. This included moving some documents from the desktop into the my documents folder. When I logged on to my PC today I was presented with my user account as it was before this reset. The PC is behaving as if it has forgotten everything that I did with the 'new' version of my account.

The problem I have is that the documents that I placed into the my documents folder are no longer there and I can't find them using the search function.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can access these documents? I'm using windows 8 64-bit.

Thanks in advance,
