“After upgrading my system to Windows 10, there are few updates available in Windows system update. I don’t know why I need these updates, I just clicked on install button and these updates are automatically installed on my system after I realize that I have made a big mistake. All the files on the system desktop are gone, what should I do now? How can I recover files from hard drive after Windows 10 update?”
