Deleted files after deleting user account: how do I find them?

I deleted a user account, and pressed "save files" (it said that it would keep all of my files in a new folder in the new user account). However, I cannot find these files anywhere, is there some way to restore them/find them? (they're important)


The saved files should be in a folder on the desktop of the account that you were using when you deleted the other account.

I thought so too, but instead I found an empty folder on my desktop with the name of the username. The profile had hundreds of files and I pressed "Keep Files" and now all is lost. Any way to retrieve them?
