Windows Server 2003 deleted the Adminsitrator profile
Posted on 2011-05-06
A few days ago we ran out of disk space on drive C (I know, I should have been checking it more regularly). I tried to log in to the server when we noticed a problem, and received the message "Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you with the default profile for the system." It let me log in as the Administrator, but all of the files on the desktop, my documents, etc are gone. I even tried running Recuva to see if it found anything deleted from that profile, and all it found were temporary internet files and cookies. Are all of these files somewhere on the machine still? I checked in the Documents and Settings, and there are not two administrator accounts anywhere. Am I completely out of luck?
