Special folder "Documents" missing after Vista install.

#1
Hi,

I upgraded from XP Home to Vista Ultimate today. Everything works except
for one thing: There's no "Documents" folder in my user account, and all
the files that used to be in "My Documents" on XP are stored twice in two
directories called C:\$WINDOWS.~Q and C:\$INPLACE.~TR. Initially I freaked
out since all my documents seemed to be gone, but then I found them in
these folders.

How do I create the special "Documents" folder in Vista? I remember in XP I
could use TweakXP to create special folders, but for Vista I have no clue,
so help would be greatly appreciated.

If a Documents folder doesn't exist, type "shell:personal" (without
quotation marks) in the Start Search box of the Start Menu, and press Enter
on your keyboard. A new Documents folder will be created, with the
appropriate (hidden, system) desktop.ini file inside it (which enables the
special icon). The default location for the folder is C:\Users\(Your
Name)\Documents.
