Hello Alexy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No worries, you only removed the included folders for those the libraries.

Each default library contains the two folder locations below by default. You can just add them to the appropriate library to restore them. Substitute folder in the path below with the folder for that library. For example, Documents folder for the Documents library.


Library - Include a Folder
  • C:\Users\(user-name)\folder
  • C:\Users\Public\folder
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Brink for the prompt reply.

I see 2 folders for Documents but for Pictures and Videos only 1, how do I add as in default?

Apologize for my ignorance.

Apologize to be botherin you again Brink.

1. Have C:\Users\XPS\folder
C:\Users\Public\folder only for My Documents.

2. None for Music.

3. For Pictures and Videos just C:\Users\XPS\folder.

How can I have both C:\Users\XPS\folder
C:\Users\Public\folder for the rest 3 i.e Music, Pictures and Videos?

Windows Search is on and have indexing unchecked.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

It's no bother at all.

Sure, you can include any folder(s) you like in a library. You'll just need to repeat the tutorial below to include the folders per library.

Thanks Brink, which option should I adopt, the 1st or 2nd one?

I get this error using 2nd option?

Can one delete all libraries and create new ones?

Are you able to navigate to and directly open your C:\Users\XPS\Music folder in File Explorer?

There might be an issue with that folder instead.
