Windows 7: Missing profile folders concern

Missing profile folders concern

I have recently experienced a problem with installing Autodesk Inventor and been provided with information necessary to resolve the issue from Autodesk.
One of these being the removal of the following profile folders:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk \
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Autodesk
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk.
Having successfully accomplished this I decided to double check and to my astonishment found that the what I believed to be the windows primary holding folders, namely
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\......
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\.......
C:\ProgramData\.........
were no longer.
Is this in fact the case and if so how do I correct this matter?
I would have liked to have attached a copy of the relevant hyperlink message received but am uncertain how to go about it!

Redirect User Profile to use folders on D:\ ?
I tried moving the location of the User Profile to D, and made a mess. Then I tried moving it to D at installation. Better. But now I've found that'll be difficult for system images. How can I make C:\User\\ point to D:\\? i.e., C:\User\MiraNova\Commissions > D:\MiraNova\Commissions
