My pinned folders disappeared

When you drag click upwards on Windows Explorer, the saved folders up top have all disappeared.. Anyone know how to restore them? Would be great help.

Uhm, someone else may be able to help you based on this, but could you provide more information, and perhaps a screen shot?

So you had folders pinned there, that are now missing?

Same thing. And yes, there was quite a bit of important folders pinned and it's a pain to go back and do them all again. :\

Are the folders themselves still in place and intact? No missing files or anything?

Yes they've just been removed from the pin list.

Does anyone other than you use this account?

Also, give this a try, if you don't mind. Mild system file corruption strikes me as possible.
