This happened because you moved the hair file required by the saved character AFTER saving it. Try moving the hair piece back to where you originally had it.

If that doesn't work, just remake the character. Load all the files from ONE folder and keep all the files you use for saved characters in one folder. Something like:

C:\SDT - has all your main files that are used for your saved characters. Hairs, backgrounds, mods and such. Much easier for loading and such.
C:\SDT\BGS - Place BGs here
C:\SDT\Hairs - Place Hairs here
C:\SDT\Mods - Place Mods here

This does create duplicate files, but that are very small so storage isn't an issue. Hope you understand and this helps.

That happens when the hair is saved in a different folder, so for example i have them in a "hairs" folder so in the default folders you press the + sign and in the new text box, enter "/hairs", which based on your picture would be "/hair", then you close the error screen and try to use the character again and it should work, if not tell me if another error happened and I'll try to help.

and don't worry your English was okay  ;)

Edit:
dammit AaRl beat me to it, it's okay though as long as help is given

Edit2:
1)do you have the actual hair
2) if you do try making a hair file and putting it there,then see if it works
Exiled, mystified
Though the sacred halls I'll bring
Demise, eternal ice
The end of your reign upon time
Your world I'll swallow
In wintry eternal night

The .sdt file just saves characters codes and file names/paths as far as I know. Not the actual files themselves. Still, like I and Lizoran said. Just move/get the files back to a central folder and just remake/resave the character and you should be fine.

So, I have re-downloaded loader by ModGuy, and extracted to new folder, in main folder i created folder named "Hair", when i runned Loader by flash, and tried to load characters from file lol v5.sdt, again showed error to enter missing paths. So I in text box "Deafult Folder" add a folder named "Hair" and tried to use this characters, still shows the error.

Structure of Folders (may its help to find my mistake)
SDT (main folder)
-Mods
-Hair
-BG
-Settings
-Template
-Guide

Well, what hairs, mods or BGs were used on whatever site you played the game on? Search for them on this site. Also check out Anon's Archive that has nearly every hair piece ever made for SDT.
