Windows 7: Restoring temp folders from Ramdisk

Restoring temp folders from Ramdisk

So over the years I've played around with Ramdisks and such on an old laptop and during that time I've moved the following folders to the Ramdisk over that time (don't question why I moved them, b/c I'm not sure why I did, probably read a tip or rumor at some point over the years and experimented, which is what this laptop is for)

-System Temp
-System TMP
-Temp
-TMP

My question is should I try to manually move this folder back to their original location (which of course begs the question where do they go) or if I remove the Ramdisk will they revert back to their original default location?
