Hello.

I recently did a non-destructive system restore on my HP PC. The problem i
have is that while all the files are the, the user partitions don't show up
at start up. I still have the user folders, but when i create a user with the
same name as one of the folders, it creates a new folder with a slightly
altered name.

Could anyone tell me how i set up the PC to recognise these folders as
areas. I would guess its something to do with the registry?

Create a new user account, copy the info from the old account
to the new account, then delete the old account.
