Corrupt Profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • My wife started up her laptop and it came up with the message Cannot load locally stored profile. I got in using safe mode. She wanted her photos and school work copied as they are important. I opened a new folder on the desktop and copied everything she wanted kept to this. Is was about 6 - 8 GB in size. I had a 4GB USB drive so I copied to that and would do the rest at work the next day. I started up the Laptop at work and it came up with the same message about the profile. I then went to the microsoft help pages and they suggested a system restore to a date before. I did this and it fixed the login problem. The Problem now is that I can't find either of the two folders that had the files in. Have I lost the files forever. Any help would be a life saver and a divorce stopper. David
