Hello,

I am using Win XP pro and Win 98 SE in a dual boot configuration. Recently one of my logical drives developed a file system error. After correcting it with scandisc I find that that user documents folder(Administrator and user is the same in my case) is missing in My computer. It was there alongside the Shared Documents, But only the Shared Docs., is there now.I can access the folder by going to documents and settings folder. I had done a repair using the installation disc but no use.Any Idea how this happened and how to get it back?

Thank you.

Hi gonsalves

Have you tried a System Restore? Not sure if it will work after a repair install but it might. You need to redo your Windows Updates after a Repair Install also.

If you know where the folder is can you drag it back to where you want it?
