    Windows 8.1: Start Screen Tiles Missing


    So, I guess I should explain...

    I went into This Computer and went to my C:\ drive to attempt to clean things up and make my system run faster by compressing files to save space. Unfortunately, I clicked some of the wrong stuff and hid data that I'm pretty sure the computer thinks is important, and now my Metro tiles are missing.

    Can somebody PLEASE help me restore them?

    Well, that didn't work. I have a backup. Going to purge / reinstall my OS drive.
