I downloaded a trial version of an email verifier software.
During the installation a window popped up with .."The folder c:\program files\email verifier already exists." Would you like to install to that folder anyway" Yes or No. I said No…I changed the destination path on the installer not realizing it would change anything on my computer or my documents.
When I went to My Documents it was blank except for "My sharing folder"
I did a search and found all my documents.
Now ALL my previously saved Microsoft Word and Excel Documents that are in the "C:\Documents and Settings\Joane\ MyDocuments" will not open. It now says
C:\Documents and Settings\Joane\eMail Verifier"...and when I try to open any document it says.."has changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly"..
“My sharing folder” Icon properties shows: "http://www.maxprog.c...?item_number=7" AND
"C:\Documents and Settings\Joane\eMail Verifier"
I contacted Maxprog for help and their answer is:
I don't think that creating a shortcurt can damage anything. All your data is still in the 'C:\Documents and Settings\Joane\' directory. Have you tried to go to that location?
How can I change this and get all My Documents back like they were?
I do not know how to find 'C:\Documents and Settings\Joane\' directory.
