Vanishing documents from folders

Hi

I've tried to save all My Document folders (folders in folders) over the years since Win 3 or so, (whatever it was) copied many times from various devices to devices (most USB) over the years but the document folders come up empty in W 7 and 8. They were various Word and Open Office docs.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Try to restore default libraries. Right click the libraries icon on the left side in windows explorer. Then choose restore default libraries.

Thank you for your response. Didn't work - maybe because I don't use library and always kept first doc folder on separate partition or HD.
