If files are lost using a cut and paste operation in Windows 10, e.g. due to a system crash, where do I find the files?
A friend of mine recently lost really important files due to cut and pasting onto a usb drive and then not ejecting the usb drive correctly.
I tried locating the files on his system but could not find them.
Is it really the case that Windows does just delete the files from the source directory before ensuring that they are moved to the target directory successfully? If so, how do I disable the cut and paste functionality as I consider it to be a seriously messed up bug then.
