USER Desktop file corrupted, searching for backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a failed system restore (how ironic is that?), my user Larry desktop will not open as configured on this new Win7 system. When I click it, a "temporary" user desktop opens along with a message stating that anything I do to change it will not be saved.

    Luckily, I had a second user, Administrator, that I'm able to work with.  It's possible that one of my system backups may have a good version of the Larry desktop, but I don't know what file or files to look for on the external drives.

    But first...tah - tah... none of the external drives are recognized, so that presents another problem.
