Hello,
All my docs,photos etc vanished from my dell laptop and I can't find them anywhere. I did a system restore a couple of days ago and everything was fine but now when I try to use Firefox/Mozilla I keep getting an error message. Any help greatly appreciated..

Greetings,

1. click on start menu

2. on the start search box type regedit and press enter

3. then on the regedit go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

4. on the right pane check if you can see the missing files or folders (under Name column) has the default %USERPROFILE% location (under Data column) for it.

5. right click on the missing files or folders and click modify

6. Type in the default location of the missing personal user folder, then click OK.

7. Close regedit.

8. Logoff and logon, or restart the computer to restore the folder.

Good Luck
