  1. accidently deleted "Startup" folder, how to retrive it


    Hi,


    I accidentally deleted the Startup folder from the user account C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs\Startup.

    Now, when I run shell:startup, it shows an error. I have created a startup folder at that specific location but it still shows error. Is it possible to create a startup folder through regedit app? and how?

    :)

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
