Installing Deleted Files Off My Desktop

I run a PC with Windows 10 and after I installed Cubase 10 it deleted a bunch of files off my desktop. I searched to see if maybe they just got moved but it looks like they are permanently deleted (not even in my recycling bin). Weird (and annoying) issue. I hope it’s just a one time occurrence.

(Despite that, I just want to say I LOVE the new features in Cubase 10… they are so good… that it’s sooooo worth losing those files even though some of those files were somewhat important)

Anyway, anyone else have this issue???
