KB4497934 revives deleted Word and Notepad files
This time around, the reports are related to Notepad and Microsoft Word.
(1) 40 or so icons had appeared on my desktop – at least 50% of these were for old notes made on Notepad.
(2) four Word documents, included my template Word (I’d changed the font & font size four days ago) had been auto-recovered and I had to decide which ones to keep.
As you can see, the problem involves old Notepad files and the accidental auto-recovery of a few Word documents. Somehow, the update managed to bring these deleted files back.
The user didn’t come up with any other details, such as when he deleted the documents, what Word version he has or what laptop he is using.
All we know is that the icons on the desktop appeared after restarting the computer.
The problem remains unsolved, and until now, nobody came with an explanation or a solution for the issue.
However, this is only a hypothesis as the OP didn’t mention such details in his original message.
