I'm using Lubuntu and I logged into my only account, but when I log on none of my previous edits are there, except for some software applications I installed.
My previous files that I had are missing. My previous browser history is missing. My screen background is missing and is set to the default screen that was when I initially installed Lubuntu, and the task panel bar also looks like it did when I initially installed Lubuntu.
I don't know why this happened and so I don't know how to prevent it if it happens again. I'm using Lubuntu version 17.10. Is there any way I can restore my computer to the previous state it was in so I can retrieve my files back?
The only thing that is left from my previous settings are software applications I installed, but everything else looks like it would when you install Lubuntu fresh.
