Windows 7: Missing Folder On Re-Install ?

Missing Folder On Re-Install ?

Hello,

PC crashed, real good, and have had to re-install OS, etc.

Have everything running, sort of now, but some things have changes apparently with the re-install.

I used to have a Folder, I'm pretty sure, that was called Documents.
It was in the chain: C:\Users\Bob\Documents.

Some software I'm trying to re-install is looking for this Documents Folder to put some items in it.

How do I resurrect it please, and put it in the proper place in the chain ?

Thanks,
Bob

Hello Bob,

It should your My Documents folder in your C:\Users\Bob folder like below.

If it's not there, then you could use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore it.

User Folders - Restore Default Location

Hope this helps,
Shawn
