It’s been some time since Microsoft released the Windows 10 issue update (at least a few days), so it’s time for another issue to update. Sure enough, kb4532693 released this week is a question-and-answer update. The update was released two days ago on The Month’s Patch Tuesday Event, and users have feedback that the update loads incorrect account information and hides desktop files.
Microsoft officials don’t acknowledge the problem, but many users in Windows Answers and other online forums have sent out reports of problems complaining that their files have been moved. According to the explanation of themedia Bleeping Computer, the affected user indicated that a temporary user account was required during the KB4532693 update, but the user’s profile could not be restored after completion.
The good news is that this update does not erase your data, but instead renames the original user profile in the C:?Users folder. If you are affected by this issue, you can check to C: Users to see if there is a rename profile that ends at .000 or .bak. Unfortunately, for many people, restoring a profile through registry editing can be a difficult and risky task.
As some users have pointed out, they can resolve the issue by restarting Windows several times or uninstalling the KB4532693 update, so it is safer to use this method first if you are affected by this issue.
