Right well zero points for not making a backup before updating/ upgrading.

Did you update from a previous version of Yosemite, or did you upgrade from a previous version of Mac OS X?

If you upgraded from a previous version of Mac OS X did you do an over in place install or a clean install?

Have you set your iCloud preferences to save your Desktop & Documents to iCloud, and your your photos?

System Preferences> iCloud> iCloud Drive
