I tried to do this, a couple of the things I couldn’t find for instance, I couldn’t find folder options in step 3 and chose under organize and clicked on properties. Under general attributes I checked Hidden and now everything is messed up.
I cannot find any of my saved music, documents, data. Please can someone help me??

Emily, just go through the process once again. You will find all the folders there only.

Здравейте,
направих всичко както е обяснено, но при мен в папката Роаминг няма папка скайп.
Къде може да се е дянала според вас тази папка?
