I am currently living in California and I periodically RDP to my home computer in NY.
I'm not quite sure how this happened, but from the last time I logged in a few days ago, to today, my user account has been mysteriously deleted?! Perhaps Windows Update did something flaky? I have no idea!
I have access to a different administrator account that I'm able to log into (user: Dani), but the Users folder for that user is a clean slate. I am able to access the Users folder for the user I usually log in as (used to be user: DaniHorowitz), and all of my files are there. According to their security settings, they seemingly belong to a ghost user with a GUID name.
I cannot seem to find any record of there being a user named DaniHorowitz anywhere with the exception of a Users folder by that name that is owned by a user with a GUID name.
What is the absolute cleanest way to recover my profile without missing out on any hidden files or permission settings that may have been configured?
