Aa a test, create a new administrator account to see if the library folders are hidden in it as well when you are logged in it. If not, then you might consider copying what you want from the old account's user folders into the new account's user folders. Plus, copy any shortcuts from the Start Menu not already in the new account's Start Menu. After everything checks out, you could delete the old user account.
Thank you very much for this useful tutorial. I successfully unhid my libraries using the command promt. However, my libraries is still looking like this after I clicked on restore default libraries.
Could you please give me some advice on how to completely restore my libraries to its default view?
I am really sorry, Brink. I should have been more specific.
My libraries used to look like this.
But after I unhid it, it is now looking like the pictrure I attached on #44.
Could you see the difference?
I think they are both tiles view but the size and the position of those icons are just different.
Following a recent crash and despite lots of help from yourselves, I eventually installed a new HDD and have clean re-installed Windows 7 which works OK.
I now have the old HDD in a caddy and have successfully transferred most files.
I have taken ownership of the existing files but have not been able to find the libraries with all my music & photos.
Can you advise on how I can retrieve these?
