Hello kind sirs... This problem has been bugging me since I got it. When I booted up my laptop my desktop lost all its icons and a dialog box popped up saying: Location is not available C:\Users\<Username>\Desktop is not accessible. The directory name is invalid. I went to the C:\Users\<Username>\ directory and saw that my Desktop folder became a file... When I try to open the Desktop.. the open with dialog box came out. I tried creating a new folder with the same name (Desktop) and Windows says that a folder with the same name already exists.. However when I right click on it and tried going to properties, then the Previous Versions tab.. I can actually recover my old files (1 week ago.. but I still need the current ones and of course use my desktop as well). How can I fix this T_T. I believe that the directory got corrupted somehow during a write operation.. I already tried using chkdsk and sfc -scannow.. but it didn't help. *sigh*. Is there anyway to make it into a folder again?
