I have removed/deleted the Public Folder in Windows 7
Posted on 2011-10-23
In dealing with another problem and trying to stabalize my Windows 7 machine, I thought I'd delete some unneeded folders. In the process, I noticed my Windows 7 "Public Folders" contained some obsolete stuff. In trying to just remove some of the sub-folders there, I seem to have deleted the whole thing. I don't know if I actually deleted any files or folders, but I at least seem to have eliminated the "Public Folders" folder.
I would like to have some "Public Folders."
How do I do that? Have I caused any permanent damage to anything beyond my self-esteem?
