Windows 7: Problem with user accounts after doing a recovery

Problem with user accounts after doing a recovery

I had to use the Acer eRecovery on my Desktop pc after it kept shutting down without warning. The eRecovery told me it would back up all my user accounts data on my hard drive and that I could recover them when it had finished the re-install.

Following the re-install of the OS I have found the user account data but I have no idea how to move it all back to where it used to be.

Can anyone help?

default user directories are: c:\Users\<account user name>
Sub directories will include (Contacts, Desktop, Downloads, Favorites, My Documents, My Music, My Pictures and My Videos)

Your saved user data should still contain subdirectories with similiar, if not identicle name.

You can simply copy the User's sub directories and paste them into the default C:\Users\<User account name> select replace and you should be good.
