Windows 7: Default "My Documents" point to ...?

Default "My Documents" point to ...?

I've a bit of a mess after relocating the "My Documents" folder so I'd like to start over and set everything back to default. Three questions:
  1. Which folders does the default Libraries/Documents folder contain?
  2. Where does the default Libraries/Documents/My Documents folder point to?
  3. Where does the default C:\Users\<user>\My Documents folder point to?

Thanks for your help!
