My Question or Issue

Before upgrading to Windows 11 I had local files in the file explorer music library.  After completing a fresh install for Windows, I lost those files (silly me forgot to back them up) and I no longer have access to them on desktop. On my iPhone I am able to see the local files however play as normal.

 

Is it possible to recover the lost files on the desktop or will I have to obtain new copies?

Hey @Ishvone,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

If you've synced the files from your desktop to your phone, unfortunately it won't be possible to reverse-sync them back to your desktop, so in this case you'll need to obtain new copies.

 

Let us know if there's anything else.
