My dad thinks he's a bit of a tech wiz (20 years ago maybe) so when he got a laptop a couple of years ago he partitioned the hard drive into 3 sections one as back up one for apps and the other for files. He has now lost the 'My Documents' folder from his file drive. It isn't hidden I've enabled viewing of these, but if you try to add a new folder called 'My Documents' it says: 'Cannot rename New Folder: A file with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different file name.' Using or copying across his back ups is not an option as he is stubborn as a mule. Any suggestions? Oh, the documents inside the folder are still accessible as the first thing that comes up through excel if 'open' is clicked in the file menu.
