Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 from 11.04 with a USB installation. I chose install keeping old files (other choices were install 11.10 alongside, and complete new install). During the upgrade it asked for my name and computer name. After the upgrade was finished and restarted, the other users (there were two others previously) has disappeared! Only my name is present. Even using the Other Users account cannot open the old accounts. But checking the home directory, their folders are still intact. What happened? How do I correct this? I'm a newbie. Thanks
