That's unlikely. If it wiped everything, it should have wiped Windows also, and clearly it runs Windows, or wouldn't be able to boot.
Prudent people make a regular backup and don't even loose anything if their PC burns down. Other people (like you?) take the risk that nothing serious will happen and can lose everything. That's their own choice, but we don't recommend it.
This looks like a case of a currupted account,. Then Windows makes a temporary account to login to. If that's the case, all your data is still safely stored in your original account; there only is nothing in your current temporary account.
The first thing to do then: copy all your data (from your normal account) - that's the whole Windows profile - to some external hard disk. Two disks is even better, just in case you use only one and it fails.
You might be able to do this from your temporary account as it is. Maybe you have to run Explorer in administrator mode, or take ownership of the data you want to copy. Maybe you need to login into your spare admin account (if you don't have one, you know understand why you should have made it). An alternative is to boot into some Linux disc or stick and copy from there.
Once your data is safe, see if you can make a new permanent account, login to that and see if you can copy your data either from your old permanent account or from the backup copies you just made.
If you feel unsure about everything, have it done by a repair shop.
Hi guys please help, I was using my computer just fine as usual, all of a sudden I get a blue screen with this message:
Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.
We're just collecting some error info, and then
we'll restart for you.
It restarted my computer and literally everything has gone from my computer now, all my downloads, documents, internet history, itunes library. everything gone. I've gone to system restore it says there is no back up file to draw from.
What the hell happened? have I seriously lost all of my files forever? why and how did this even happen? Please help someone.
