MY Documents PROBLEM

One week ago i coincidentally deleted my Documents folder from desktop permanently.
Then i restored it by going to customize icons menu.
My documents folder again appeared but it is now i think incomplete.'
It doesn't saves data.
It has no documents as earlier there were saved games, pictures ,video but now there is only two folders DESKTOP AND DOCUMENTS(Document folder is empty)
Whenever i play games and create a new profile it SAYS "UNABLE TO CREATE PROFILE"

I have also C CLEANER.WHEN I RUN IT A NEW FOLDER EVERY TIME APPEARS ON THE DESKTOP WHICH CONTAINS FAVORITE BAR.EARLIER THIS FAVORITE BAR WAS IN MY DOCUMENTS FOLDER.

But when in c cleaner i un check RECENTLY TYPED URLs bar it doesnot apper.

WATS THE PROBLEM?????????

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Two things you can try here:
  1. Try a system restore to a point before you deleted the folder.
  2. Create a new user account, set it up as you want it, and then delete the old user account.

Restore your system to a point in time before you deleted the Documents folder.

System Restore

IF I WOULD DO SYSTEM RESTORE THEN WOULD MY DATA , LIKE MS WORD AND EXCEL AND MY GAMES (THEY ARE IN DRIVE E AND D)WOULD BE DELETED???

OR THIS WOULD HAVE NO EFFECT ON MY OTHER DRIVES???

No the data in your other drives will not be affected or deleted.Only the partition containing your OS i.e C drive will be reverted to the same state as the point of that particular restore point creation.

When i go to system restore there were 3 options of date 24,23 and 21st march.But i have this problem since the starting of the march.i.e. 1st march.
Then i click show more restore point then two more options were available of 12 and 13 Feb. But when i click them and did NEXT then it said" THE SELECTED BACKUP COULDN'T BE FOUND> SYSTEM RESTORE IS LOOKING FOR A RESTORE POINT THAT IS ON YOUR BACKUP> CHOOSE A DIFFERENT POINT>>>>>>"
