Windows 7: Missing profile folders concern

Missing profile folders concern

I have recently experienced a problem with installing Autodesk Inventor and been provided with information necessary to resolve the issue from Autodesk.
One of these being the removal of the following profile folders:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk \
Having successfully accomplished this I decided to double check and to my astonishment found that the what I believed to be the windows primary holding folders, namely
were no longer.
Is this in fact the case and if so how do I correct this matter?
I would have liked to have attached a copy of the relevant hyperlink message received but am uncertain how to go about it!
