Restore files deleted during WIndows 10 update.

How do I restore jpeg files that were deleted from ther C drive in the last Microsoft update? These files are not in the recycle bin.
Hi David,

Are all your files gone, or just some files?

1
If that is just some of your files, where exactly were those files located?

2
If that is all your files:

Before you do anything else:

Restart (not shut down) your PC 4 times, each time let your PC get to the Desktop before the next restart, this will fix this issue a lot of the time . ..

The files were located in 2 Dropbox synced directories. About half of the files were deleted after the update but fortunately they were not deleted from the Dropbox server for some reason.

Hi David

That is very strange, a Windows update should not certainly not touch your data in a DropBox synced folder, I am really glad that you have not lost those files . .. .
