My User Name Folder has vanished:

The "My Name/Home Folder from my desktop has mysteriously vanished and I cant find it anywhere.

I created a shortcut to my Hard Drive as a quick fix but its not the same as I cant drag and drop things into (folders only get coped they dont "move").

How can I restore the home folder?

Right click on an open area of the Desktop and select Personalize.
Click on Themes then Desktop icon settings.
Make sure User Files is checked.

User Profile folder - static folder instead of created by user signon
A twist on the creation of user folders on a drive other than C: in Win 7 Ultimate. Does anyone know if one could designate a user folder location such as E:\Data instead of using the users name and being a subdirectory of "Users". I am the ONLY one on my computer - and it would seem much easier to...
