We have long ago switched off our Windows Domain.
A user came in with his laptop, that was still a member of it.
I think the Desktop and files were synced with the fileserver,
but that doesn't exist anymore either.
So Windows saved the files locally.
I copied the user's local directory (
C:\users\) and copied it to a safe location(s),
which succeeded without errors (so I didn't completely check if everything was there).
I assumed that would get me all the user's files.
Then I took the computer out of the domain.
Now I noticed "My Documents" seems to be Empty, which would be very bad. The Desktop came over, the Documents didn't. I did the copy multiple times without errors.
I guess windows simply removed them when the computer was taken out of the domain, and didn't copy them because (maybe) I copied them as the local Administrator.
Is there some place on the disk I could perhaps find these files?
