I am having error webpage couldn't be saved to the selected location.

Hi,


Whenever I have tried saved a webpage to any place in my user account's porfile, I found the error
The webpage couldn't be saved to the selected location.



Note I have moved all my accounts to another partition othe than OS partition, do you think this is the cause?

I would highly apprecicate it if you could help me.

2 simple options to try
1 - create another account and logon and try again
2 - move profile back and test

This is only happening with
I would explain what I did after a clean install of windows:
When finished a clean install, I changed all three existing user account's profile folder from its default location to another one after "Mohammad,Ali, Salim' in order.
Then, I have tried changing both the user account's visible name and a user account's profile folder name for both (Ali, Salim) to (Awahd, Lardhi) in order.
So, the problem is now only with these two accounts I have changed their visible name and profile folder name.


Besides, I have now installed Firefox, and I found out there wasn't any problem with saving a webpage with Firefox while logging on both accounts I have been having a prolem saving webpage inside IE with.
What is the matter with only IE with only these accounts changed their visible name and profile folder name?
I changed correctly the visible name and profile folder name of these 'Ali, Salim' to 'Awadh', Lardhi') in order as well as in registry.

if the old location of the user accounts(Awadh and Lardhi)' profile folder I changed was still used by Internet explore, how could I change it from inside the IE program to the new location?

But even if old location of the accounts (Awadh and Lardhi)' profiel folder were still used by Iternet explore, I would have received an error while downloading programs . I didn't face any problems downloading files, only saving webpages.

I am respectfully requesting anyone at this splendied forum to reply to see if there is a solution of this problem, or I should delete them and create others. I really don't have any problem with the newly created user accounts, although their default location has also been changed to another one. Also, one existing account which is 'Mohammad' as I said before hadn't any problem, although it has also been changed.

I have a restore point I created before changing the user account's visible name and the user account's porfile folder name of both 'Ali' and 'Salim' to be 'Awadh' and 'Lardhi' in order.
In other words, Ali became 'Awadh' and 'Salim' became 'Lardhi' in both visible name and profile fodler name.
However, I have restored the sytem to the point which created before changing the user account's visible name and the user account's porfile folder name of both 'Ali' and 'Salim'.
So I have ending up with getting back 'Ali' and 'Salim'.
However, the same error is still shown for me.
I also, changed the profile folder of both Ali and salim to the default location 'C:\users'. However, I have got much more problems than when they are in the new location.
Such as, I can no longer even save any files such images. or texts








The problem I was encountering before undoing changes was only saving a webpage inside 'IE'
