    is this possible?

    I have this computer that used to be part of a large network and i noticed it had many different users so i deleted them and found out the account i was using was not the administrator. so now i'm trying to find out what happened to all the files from the other accounts. are they retrievable? can i go back to restore the accounts as they were? i've deleted users before and it always gave me the option of saving files and folders but it didn't give me that option this time. what could i do?

    best buy geek squad wants to charge me hundreds of dollars to help me but if it's something simple i'd rather try and do it myself. any help would be appreciated thanks.

    This is your second thread about this subject....

    you have locked yourself out of a computer or accounts.....the computer was given to you, you stated in your other thread, and you deleted something> and cannot log in.

    From your other thread:

    We are SORRY but as I explained to you already, this forum cannot provide assistance with lost passwords, or workarounds to bypass logging in, do you understand? It is against this site's Rules. Closing this second thread.

    Note: Use any search engine like Google....type in what you need to find help with, you should find lots of it, even from Microsoft itself.... but, due to the networking environment, such help may not work!
