Running Windows 7 64-bit.
I had symbolic links for
C:/Program Files (x86), and
D:/Program Files (x86), and
Tried to solely delete the symbolic links from
C:/. Turns out Win7 now believes I deleted the real
C:/Users folder. Now I cannot login, since it fails to load user profiles (only an admin and guest account present). It was my understanding that deleting the symbolic links doesn't delete the content that it redirects to.
Is there a way to restore
C:/Users despite all user profiles being unloadable? Before restarting, I had gone into the Recycle Bin and tried to restore
C:/Users. Seemed to work at first. Apparently, this is not the case.
P.S. This is an old setup of which I am trying to repair without deleting the files on there. Please don't ask me why there are symbolic links for these folders.
