I routinely clicked "update all" for my Adobe Creative Cloud update icon this morning on my MacBook Pro 2020 model with OS Catalina 10.15.7.
Later, when I was back on my computer, I noticed that everything in my Documents folder had disappeared, except for a folder called Adobe that has four subfolders, but they are all empty (which did not use to be the case earlier).
Obviously, something has gone horribly wrong. I did not get any error messages, and the CC updater only says that all the software are up to date. But all my work+private documents and data have disappeared!
I tried to search if they had ended up into some other subfolder etc., but I can't seem to find them (tens of gigabytes of documents!) Also the contents of my Desktop folder vanished at the same time, but the contents of my Movies, Pictures, Music and Download folders remain intact.
What happened? Is there any way to recover them?
I assume I can't be the only one to whom this happened?
