Shared folder

I accidently deleted the default shared folder that's normally found alongside the 'my music' and 'my pictures' can I get it back?

or if you recently deleted it and you are on xp try system restore to a date prior to deleting the file

Is it still in the recycle bin?

Open recycle bin click on folder and select restore.

Thanks guys, but system restore didn't bring it back, there's nothing in the recycle bin, and I couldn't make head nor tail of the 'handy recovery' program!

handy recovery run the program, select your drive,press filter then analyse.After the program has finished running you need to search through the files it has found for the one that you want when you find it click on it and click on recover

Apologies for being super-dim, but did that and it came up with several things but I still couldn't see anything that said 'Shared Documents'....Would it be under something else/within another file?
Also, I was worried about clicking restore as I noticed it said something about permanent data loss? Don't want to screw anthing else up - i've only had this new pc a week!
