    Hello Runesman, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you saying that your Documents "library" is getting the same error message in the tutorial when you try to open it?

    Did you already try opening the actual folders (ex: "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents") the files are in instead of through the library to see if you are able to access them?

    Thanks for welcoming me, I realized I can access my documents from going to "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents" but how to I restore my "Library" folders they all appear as (ex. Douments.library-ms, pictures.library-ms) I appreciate the help by the way.

    Since you are having that many issues, you might consider reinstalling Windows after backing up anything that you do not want to lose.
