"my documents" file folder in wrong position
Somehow the file holding my documents was moved. I know where it is, but it doesn't show up in the proper place under Libraries when I look at it with Windows Explorer.
Problem: My backup program looks in C:\users\Mark S. Bacon to find files to back up. My photos and music are there and current, but the "my documents" file was missing. I copied it from the library, but now I have a duplication in the library and in C:\users and the C;|users version does not change when I modify a file in the "my documents" in the library. (What I copied was not just a link, but the entire set of documents. I had hoped I was just copying a link to the files.)
Is the solution just to make my Cobian back up look in Libraries, not C:\users? Or is there a way to put things back they way they were? Would a system restore fix the jumbled folders in C:\users and the library? That would not be my first choice of solution as I would have to reinstall some software that I've loaded since the restore point. Or would I?
I know this sounds like a mess. It doesn't hinder my computer use, but it screws up backing up.
Thanks very much.

You could give it a try to see if it may restore it. If not, then OPTION TWO will for you.
The registry is not as bad as seems. The main thing is that you only do what is in the tutorial. I would say only read through the steps a few times, and ask any questions you may have until you feel comfortable with it.
Afterwards, create a restore point before starting to be able use it with a system restore in case you should make a mistake.
