If you restored your data using the Mozy Restore Manager and used the default option "Preserve Original Location" then your data is most likely under C:\Users\(old profile name) under the old Windows profile name.
For example if your old Window profile name was Bob but you now log into Windows 10 as JBob then the original location for the user Bob doesn't exist so Mozy has to create the "original" location Bob under C:\Users\. So before the restore on your new Windows 10 operating system you would only have C:\Users\JBob\ and then Mozy has to create the location C:\Users\Bob\.
Hopefully that makes sense. Go look under C:\Users\ for your old Windows log in user profile name where your data is most likely located.
Re: I did a full restore to my new motherboard. Where is the restored folder on my PC? win 10
Thanks for your swift reply plus detailed instructions. Even though it was only yesterday, don’t recall whether I selected: use the default option "Preserve Original Location".
However, I believe I found them! I say, “I believe”, because, as you suggested, they are in a different directory: C:\Users\esteem.
I tested a few image files and found 5 copies of each. So, being I only need 1, should I delete the other 4, them move it to the correct directory? Being that’s a gargantuan job (17212 files) and I recently backed up and restored a number of the critical files to a flash drive, such as My Documents, CSV files, etc, I should I delete this Mozy back up and use Restore again, but this time select the individual files to avoid duplication?
