Hello,
Look in the registry to get the names and locations correct.
Run Regedit, browse down to :
HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Explorer\Shell Folders

This should be the list of all the locations and names of the folders you are looking for, I would then try to recreate the folders you are missing using those names and locations. Just try with one or two folders first to see if it's working.
