I tried this to get lost files after a system restore or boot.
The welcome screen was freezing and I did a restore to try and help clear it up. It helped a bit but It is still freezing and not logging on quickly. And in the process. I lost all my files!

I tried the above steps and didn't have any luck.

Anyone able to help with ideas? I am in a jam and need to get access to my files. Asap

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

To get your data back I suggest you to download Stellar Phoenix Windows data recovery – Home and connect the hard disk into another system. First, recover your data from that drive and then format it for reuse.

Thank you, nathanwirth 1

Ok, it sounds like you are dealing with a fragged hard drive, or corrupted system files. Boot into safe mode, does it boot faster?

Reverting a fragged drive back does not help the operation, it just makes matter worse. Open up the file manager, how much free space is on the C drive? If it is less than 20% free, then you need to free up some space, defrag the drive, run chkdsk, then SFC /scannow.

Hi,
I have plenty of space on the hard drive 399 free of 465 GB?/

Should I still do the defrag / checkdsk and SFC?

Yes, I encourage you to defrag it....
