Deleted "My Pictures"

Hello, I accidentally deleted the "My Pictures" folder, I looked through the Recycle Bin, but it's not there

It's not in C:\Users\C, I've already checked the user folder numerous times

Any idea on how I can get back the "My Pictures" folder?

Please help

Try Shadow Explorer - you may be able to recover it from your restore point(s). If you need instructions how to operate it, have a look here Recover lost files with Shadow Explorer - Windows Help Forum
