Windows 7: Libraries sub-folders deleted...need to get them back!

Libraries sub-folders deleted...need to get them back!

Hey everyone,

I was playing around with the Zune settings for syncing folders. I accidentally deleted all my subfolders in my Win 7 Libraries (through Libary Locations), but the files still exist in the system, which is weird.

For example, in my Pictures Library, there are currently no folders, but when I search for "Trip to NY" using the start menu search, it shows up under C:\Users\(Username)\Pictures\My Pictures
But My Pictures doesn't show when I open the Pictures Libary. Get it?

How can I just restore everything I deleted? Please help, as it's driving me crazy.

So I know I solved this problem once but while I've been away from the site these past couple months, it's come back.
