Windows 7: error; My Pictures not accessible access denied

error; My Pictures not accessible access denied

Hi All
I have deleted all the files and folders which were in My Document because I wanted to transfer all documents from another machine's data partition to the machine I'm working now(which I had transferred the \My Documents to the data partition some time ago).
Is there a way to get access to My Pictures, My Videos and My Music again?
Help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

You've broken junction points and symbolic links associated with your libraries.

Please use this tutorial to restore your library settings to their defaults.

Takeown those files

Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista - How-To Geek

P.S. you can do this in the command line, but the link above makes it much easier. by adding the reg entry

Thanks.
No that does not change anything.
I must've been away with the ferries when I deleted or overwrite it(those above mentioned folders) with a restore from a backup. I could've copy the images over to My Pictures and that would've been ok.
Any other ideas what this could be?
Update: I did a restart after following your advice and all is back to normal. Thank you!
Also thanks to Fabertech!
