How to Fix My HP Restarted Itself and Stuff Is Missing

Hey, today, when I turned my laptop on, a message told me to log out of my account, or my work in progress would be deleted. So, I just logged out. Then my PC started to reset itself, and when it turned back, I was logged out of anything. My background was reset, and all files in File Explorer are missing. Can we fix this?

HP restarted itself and stuff is missing, how to fix? You may have logged into a temporary account. Now, remember not to move any files around and do not make any changes to them. Now, you first need to restart your PC four times (restart, remember, do not shut down). Each time you need to let your PC get to the Desktop before the next start, it may help. 

If you have tried this way out and you are sure your files are lost, you can recover them using the data recovery tool. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a wise choice.
