Please HELP ME--RESTORE My Pictures folder

I have followed the instructions listed from previous threads, however, I am still not able to retrieve the folder: My Pictures

I actually deleted both My documents and My Pictures folders by accident, and I was able to restore My documents from the recycle bin, however, My Pictures folder was not in the Recycle bin to begin with so I was not able to restore it.

I have searched the shell: My Pictures, looked through and unhid all files, but I am still not successful in restoring My Pictures folder(and pictures I need and want to have all back in my computer ....

And I also do not have the option or folder titled My Pictures, but only a folder Pictures.

I don't know what to do...pls. help thank you! :0/

Thank you for the information.

Now I come across a second problem, I am now prompted with a message "Photo Gallery can't open this photo or video. The file may be unsupported, damaged or corrupted."

Will I now have to download a different photo software this time?

Thanks again.

You're welcome. Did that restore your My Pictures folder?

If you like, please ZIP and upload one these photos that Photo Gallery cannot open. I'll test it on my system to see if maybe there's something wrong with the photo or Photo Gallery.
