Windows 7: Deleted both my music folders

Deleted both my music folders

Deleted both my music folders, one in libraries, under music folder, the other in favorites. Nothing I googled seems to deal with deleting and restoring both. I do not have a restore point, or backup, just a factory restore usb. How can I restore both folders?.

Right click the Favorites listing and click on Restore Favorites links,
Right the Libraries listing and click on Restore default libraries.
You can also Click the start button and click on your User name listed near the top and right click the My Music folder and click on Restore previous version and see if any restore points are listed,
You might see if your music is in the My Music folder first,
Deleting a Library or under Favorites (Public Music) does not delete the files just the shortcuts to the My Music folder,
Right click My Music and click on Add to Library/ Music.

Hello Henry,

Double check to see if you still have your "C:\Users\(username)\My Music" folder.

If you don't, then you could use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore it and hopefully the others as well. If the others don't restore, then you should be able to manually include the folder back into the library, and add under Favorites.
User Folders - Restore Default Location
Hope this helps,

Have you tried this path
C:\Users\[Your Name]\My Music
What's in this folder? If you can't see the folder have a look in your Recycle bin!

Edit Sorry Brink, crossed but I think the OP has lost his Music folder not Pictures!

No my music is in c:\users\usename\my Music because I deleted it.. This is my issue how to restore it or make a new my music folder, which by the way manually creating music folder is not the same type of folder.

Henry,

Was that "not in" your folder, or still in your folder?

If your My Music folder is no longer in your user folder, then what I posted above will restore it.

If you deleted your folder look in your Recycle bin to see if it is in there!

No Recycle is set to delete. Brink, option 2 I tried restore my music.reg to no avail. Also incude library restore, only restores public music, which I do not use.
