I have recently freed up a bunch of space on my computer. Today my computer is coming up with an error message, when I try and access File Explorer, saying "Windows annot find 'C:\Users\HP\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2\3 - Windows Explorer. Ink'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
It has been fine for the last few days since I deleted some files but now this comes up. I have looked and I can't find a folder called APP Data, so unless it got deleted accidently? Is there anyway to reverse this. I won't be able to recover it as I emptied the Recycling bin.
Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting!
You cannot find AppData because it is a hidden folder by default. You need to enable the view of hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer to be able to read/see the files inside this folder. Be careful when touching there as you may render some application non-functional.
The shortcut that you have for File Explorer is not working as it tries to open a file/link which does not exist ('C:\Users\HP\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2\3 - Windows Explorer. Ink)
The message you get is normal considering the facts.
In order to repair it - you need to delete the existing shortcut (e.g. right click the icon you use to access explorer) and try to delete it.
