    I updated from home basic to home premium and cannot find any of my files. It
    appears everything was wiped out. What to do ??

    Hi Dan,

    Did you run the Premium install from within Basic? If so, see if you
    can find a "C:\Windows.old" folder. It will contain all of your old
    files from the Basic Vista. You may need to have hidden files and
    folders set to show to see it. You can see how in Option Two here.

    If it is there, then you can just copy them into the Vista Home Premium
    locations.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Look for a folder named Windows.old, it may have your files.

    You did back up all of your files first, didn't you?
