Windows 7: I deleted my appdata

I deleted my appdata

I was unaware about deleteing appdata, so I deleted all of it to free up space, and now I can't open some programs. Like Sony Vegas 11, and Minecraft. I was wondering if their is anyway to fix this problem
Thanks

Get this free program:
ShadowExplorer.com - About

If you have a restore point from before you deleted the folder, you may be able to go into ShadowExplorer and copy the folder out. It's good to have anyway in case you want to get something out of a restore point without backversioning all the files.

For future reference programs that store settings under AppData will likely get an error if the folder doesn't exist. You may be able to fool them by creating AppData with the subfolders Roaming, Local. and LocalLow.

If you have an external drive I'd get an image backup program like Easus ToDo or Macrium Refledct. It lets you recover from more serious errors than a restore point can fix.
