Windows 8.1, daily driver.
Just got home from work and noticed that their were several files....14 to be exact....that I did not delete. When I right click and check the properties on them, it says they were deleted four hours ago....while I was still at work???
None of them are junk files. They were all files that I would never have deleted. There is no one else here using my computer.

The even "worse" part sort of.....is that I am pretty sure it is not the first time this has happened, but this is the first time I actually checked to see what was their before I just "emptied" the bin. Now I am wondering what the heck else has been deleted that I am not aware of.

Is their something new in windows that automatically deletes things that I don't know about???

Hi Brink thanks,

They were not items from my desktop. Their were a couple pictures, some document files and some 3d printer project related files. All of which were in a folder in my documents folder.

Hmm, I'm not sure what would have automatically deleted them.
