My Documents, My Pictures, My Videos are gone

Hello;

I've changed the default My Documents, My Pictures, My Videos and My Musics paths to D:\somewhere not in C:\.

Please check the screenshot at bottom, My Documents, My Pictures, My Videos and My Musics have been disappeared at my User folder. Include paths of Libraries were gone too but I included them again.

How can I get them back in User folder?

I don't know if it would work but have you tried a System Restore from a point just before you lost them ?

I installed new programs, made some edits after the problem so I cannot make a system restore...

Take the advice of the above poster. Do the system restore and then you have to reinstall your programs. You have a problem with your computer, it may cause a bit of pain to correct it, but it must be corrected.
