You're way overestimating the user's capabilities. I might as well tell him everything's been wiped; the results would be the same.

The concept of folders is lost on this person. Opening Word's history, for example, shows he's been working on doc files that were sent to him, directly from whatever folders the receiving program decided to use. There's a bunch of .doc/.docx files stored under the user's profile, under ...AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapp_[blah1]\LocalState\LiveComm[blah2][blah3], where [blahX] is not quite as ugly as a full-blown GUID, but still comes pretty close. No trace of those same files under Documents, where they rightfully belong.

So yeah, no. I'm not touching that.
