Windows 7: Windows Recovery moved User Folder & deleted bookmarks

Windows Recovery moved User Folder & deleted bookmarks

Hi All,

I'm a computer clutz so I apologize if I'm explaining things poorly. I had to do a system restore to a prior point (two days ago) to fix a problem on a windows 7 dell PC. It worked but it moved all of my files and user profile to my C drive.

I no longer see my user account when I go to start computer. I did find my files (at least some of them) under the c drive in C/OS/Users. Is there a way to automatically get them all back where they orginally were rather than attempt to manually move them and hope I'm placing them in the correct area?

I also seem to have lost all of my bookmarks and cannot recover them on Firefox - is there any way to get them back?

Thank you so, so much for any help in advance!

Welcome to Seven Forums.

For Firefox Bookmarks try this
Ctrl + Shift + B will show all bookmarks then Import and Backup > Restore

You should keep them backed up too Firefox Bookmarks - Export (Backup) and Import (Restore) - Windows 7 Forums

Thanks I appreciate it, but tried this (should have said that sorry) and there is only one date to restore from and it is blank. I'll definitely back them up from now on.

Any idea how to move my files back to original location? this is maddening - the restore was not supposed to affect my files in any way. It's probably an easy fix, but I'm a moron with computers.
