Windows 7 lost files

I'm trying to find some database files that were created by an accounting program under my old ID.  My machine recently joined a new domain and now my files have disappeared.  Is there a way to recover old user's documents folders, etc.?  Leverything appears to be locked out so searches are ineffective.

Yes. But you'll most likely find your username more than once. One for the domain logon and one for the local logon... The domain logon will be the one with your domain name after it...
Hope this helps

Look under  C:\Users  for a folder with your old username and that's where the files will be.  If the old account was on a different domain then ask an admin to give you access to this folder tree for your old profile.  If the old account was a local workstation account then log onto the PC itself using that old account rather than using a domain account on the main logon screen.

Your old username could look funny because of the way windows 7 creates user folders. Ex: YOURNAME.01234.01234.domain
